City Council Candidate Forums

Two Candidate Forums are scheduled to introduce Lafayette voters to the 14 City Council candidates, help residents better understand the candidates’ platforms, and assist voters to make more informed decisions.

Both forums will be broadcast live on Comcast Channel 8 and on the City's Streaming Video Webpage.  A recorded version will also be available via the City's On-Demand Streaming Video webpage after each of the events.
