Forum/Survey Questions

Don’t fix what ain’t broke, so CivicCamp is once again going to crowdsource the forum/survey questions. You can find the crowdsourcing initiative at our Uservoice website. Those that do attend the ward and public school board trustee forums in September and October will also have the opportunity to write in questions to the candidates at the forum.

The crowdsourcing website will be open until about 1 week before nomination day.
