City of Missoula City Council & Mayoral Candidate Forums

The City of Missoula Office of Neighborhoods and the League of Women voters of Missoula are holding a series of in-person and livestreamed City Council and Mayoral Candidate Forums.

Over the course of three weeks in October, Missoula neighbors will have an opportunity to hear candidates respond to questions about issues that are important to the community. The Candidate Forum will follow the non-partisan, unbiased and impartial format established by the League of Women Voters.  League members will moderate and time-keep, and the League will screen questions submitted by the public for duplication and appropriateness.
