Candidates will be asked a series of questions that have been submitted from the community at- large, as well as from minority community leaders.
Each candidate will have up to two minutes to answer the question. As this is a minority focused forum, please be advised that questions will center on historic and current issues that have plagued the minority community.
You can submit your questions for this forum here.
This forum is sponsored by the Erie Dems Black Caucus, The Erie Branch NAACP, The African American Concerned Clergy, The Urban Erie Development Corporation, and The Eastside Erie Grassroots Coalition.
