The League of Women Voters Arlington Heights-Mount Prospect-Buffalo Grove Area is hosting a Candidates' Forum Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 3pm. This forum will feature Jan Schakowsky and Sargis Sangari, candidates for Congressional District 9. Our moderator is Prospect High School Senior Felix Garkisch and our Emcee is Prospect High School Junior Luiza Zanon.
This non-partisan event allows the public to hear candidates they will be voting for in the upcoming primary present their positions on important and timely topics. The candidates get equal time for opening and closing statements as well as time to answer questions from the audience.
The Candidates’ Forum will be on Zoom. You can register at our site: https://www.lwvah.org or https://lwvahforums.com/ to receive a link to the Forums. When you register you will have a chance to enter any questions you have for the candidates.
