The 2019 Cary Community Candidate Forum 

Each municipal election year, Cary hosts a forum for Town Council candidates in the fall election. The 2019 forum includes candidates in the 2019 election and follows the format of past forums.

Starting the week of Sept. 9, the 2019 forum will be available on Cary TV (Spectrum Channel 11 or AT&T Uverse Channel 99) daily at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. unless preempted by a Town Council meeting live cablecast or replay.

The forum is also available to watch below, or on the Town's YouTube channel.

Goals

The Town seeks to help disseminate relevant information about candidates in a forum that is fair, professional, dignified and respectful. The Town wants to promote discussion of a wide variety of topics while ensuring candidates equal opportunity and access to the Town's cable channel.

Benefits of this Forum Method

  • Provide a better product and more convenience for viewers
  • Lessen the amount of time that candidates and Town staff spend at forums
  • Reduce potential bias by outside forum sponsors
  • Increase community focus and involvement
  • Avoid issue of endorsements

The Cary Community Candidate Forum must comply with the Town's Government Access Channel Policy.
