Candidates in the upcoming municipal election will face each other at a public forum next month.

The forum will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 8 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Centre Stage Theatre.

Doors will open at 6 p.m.

The event is organized by the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism.

Lisa Jaager, manager of the chamber, said the public can ask questions of specific candidates, but the questions must be submitted before the forum.

The questions will be screened to remove duplications and to take out inappropriate and offensive questions as well as those attacking specific candidates.

Thor Clausen, chair of the chamber board, will be the moderator at the forum.

The municipal election will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19.

The new mayor, councillors and school trustees will serve for three years.
