Dear Candidate for the Atlantic Highlands Borough Council:
At your request, the non-partisan, non-profit League of Women Voters is pleased to moderate and oversee the Atlantic Highlands Borough Council, a Candidates’ Virtual Forum. The League of Women Voters of Greater Red Bank is a non–partisan, non-profit organization.
The Forum will take place on Monday, October 18, at 7 pm to approximately 8:15 pm as a Zoom Webinar. Candidates will log on by 6:40 pm, 20 minutes before the Forum begins. To ensure a smooth production, we’ve also scheduled a brief Tech Check on Zoom to test audio and visual on Saturday, October 16 from 8 to 9 am to check tech connections and answer preliminary questions. While this tech check will last for one hour, you will only need to spend just a few minutes with us. You will receive a “Panelist” Zoom link by email; use this same link to log onto both the Forum itself and the Tech Check.
Included with this letter are:
The Virtual Forum Format and Ground Rules
A response form for you to sign, photograph (or scan), and return to us at the email address provided by Wednesday, September 1.
The Forum will be recorded and made available before the election on our League website- www.lwvgrba.org
The League of Women Voters has an established reputation for running impartial, informative candidate forums. It is our policy to ensure that the League moderator at the event is from outside the voting area. Our ground rules, developed over years of experience, ensure objective and even-handed treatment of all candidates. When you sign and return your response form agreeing to participate, you are also agreeing to abide by these ground rules.
We appreciate your commitment and your active participation in local government. We look forward to seeing you and hearing your views. Please contact us at the address listed below if you have any questions.
