Today at noon, an announcement came that tonight, a specialized opportunity will emerge at the Fairview Baptist Church http://www.fairviewokc.com/ co-sponsored by The Oklahoma City Black Chamber of Commerce http://okcblackchamber.com/home/ .
The two groups have combined community forces to offer a platform for the Oklahoma City Mayoral Candidates Forum #1 to discuss issues relevant to the upcoming March 4th Election to be held for Oklahoma City Mayor.
A FB page has sprouted to illustrate the event invitation, and was populated with comments almost immediately. https://www.facebook.com/events/250321541795645/
Initial invitations have been broadcast over forums like email, FB and social media. This campaign year has sprouted more unique formal and informal events to consider and discuss issues facing Oklahoma City residents than in numerous preceding years, including a petition to redress with voter accountability some prior decisions that have been of concern. http://www.examiner.com/article/okc-petition-closer-to-unification-and-s...
Tonight's event begins at 7:00 pm , and seating is limited, as this is a community venue in Fairview Baptist Church fellowship hall 1700 NE 7th Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73117.
All 4 candidates http://www.okc.gov/clerk/elections/filings/index.html will be invited to identify their platforms, and will be responding to requests planned by the two sponsoring groups.
The Mayor of Oklahoma City, Mick Cornett has refused to present for a professionally managed League of Women Voters candidate debate and it is expected he will be absent from this community function as well. No reason has been given for the refusal (s) for an OKC Mayoral Election Debate 2014.
Today, per state elections rules, is also is the final day to post any financial gifts to campaigns.
The last Mayoral election had only 32% of eligible voters hitting the polls.
Community members are continuously asked to check in with friends and neighbors to ensure they will be voting. http://www.examiner.com/article/nine-is-fine-meet-your-neighbors-and-mak...
