F3 Candidate Forum and Local Initiatives on August 30th


It’s an election year, which means that Friends of Flagstaff’s Future is excited to provide a Flagstaff City Council Candidate Forum.  We will be holding the Forum from 5:30 to 8:00 pm on August 30th at the Coconino Community College Lone Tree Campus (2800 S. Lone Tree Rd.).
We will be utilizing the same format for the Forum that has become a tradition for F3. Each candidate will visit a small group of attendees to answer questions in a speed-dating type format. This provides the opportunity to ask the questions that are important to YOU and to hear the concerns of other citizens in the community.
We’re mixing things up slightly this year by inviting the local initiatives to meet with people before the Forum starts. If you have questions about the initiatives, we want to provide the opportunity to get answers and learn more. This will also be an opportunity to learn more about the important work that our co-sponsors are doing, who will also be answering questions before the start of the Forum. We are proud to have many co-sponsors this year: Sierra Club Platinum Group, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Stand Up! for Flagstaff, Habitat Harmony, Keep Flagstaff Together, Flagstaff Freethinkers, Local First Arizona, Repeal Coalition, and NAIC, Friends of Flagstaff’s Future thanks them for the work that they do in this community and for being a part of this event.
We at Friends of Flagstaff’s Future always keep in mind the importance of being involved in local issues which can have a great impact on our daily lives. While politics in Washington or even at the state level might feel distant, individuals talking to their local representatives can create the change to make their immediate surroundings more environmentally sustainable, socially just, and economically prosperous. We hope to see you on August 30th!
