The Candidate Forums are Coming
The April 6 Municipal Elections for Oak Park and River Forest will be contested except for three: Oak Park Park District, River Forest Village Clerk, and River Forest Township Board. The Oak Park Township has a contested election for the trustee positions but not for Supervisor, Assessor, and Clerk positions. For the other twelve races, we will be having Zoom candidate forums in partnership with the Oak Park and River Forest Libraries. The forum calendar will be set up soon. We hope to also include taped statements from the candidates in the uncontested races on our website. Updates on our progress will be shared weekly in these emails. If you have any questions, please contact Peggy Kell.
