Some of the candidates in the 2017 primary and general elections come and go at the Forum. They or their surrogates often use the Announcements time at the end of the Forum to speak up about their candidacies. Occasionally, candidates on the ballot will be at the Forum and will comment on other matters without directly referencing their candidacies.
At some point in each election cycle, the Forum holds sessions to hear presentations from candidates, and to listen to their answers to questions.
Videos made of all those comments are posted as they become available. This page will serve as an index to the separate pages where the videos appear. The Forum does not endorse candidates.
