Showing February 21 6 – 8 pm at the Magic Lantern Theater. To buy tickets click here.
Black Lens News Editor Sandy Williams has one-on-one interviews with finalists Robert Lehner and Dominic Rizzi.
Joan Butler, Chair of Police Advisory Committee presents community member questions that were emailed in advance. Participants in the audience felt that their questions had been cherry picked.
Audience listens to candidates respond to questions.
After the question and answer period finalists remained to mingle and respond to those who felt their questions had not been answered.
Now that we have questioned the candidates how do we give input to the mayor on the decision? These are the ladies who will have the final decision.
