Board of Education Candidate Forum
To enable voters to hear the candidates respond to questions about important issues in the May 3 primary election, the League of Women Voters of Knoxville/Knox County and its partners, including the East Tennessee SPJ chapter, are sponsoring a candidate forum for Knox County Board of Education candidates.
It will be held Tuesday, April 19, 2022, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Phyllis Wheatley Center on Cruze Street.
LWVKKC is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
Candidate forums sponsored by the League honor the League’s longstanding nonpartisan practices to ensure trust, respect, and fairness to all who participate.
We use a standard set of guidelines for candidates, moderators, volunteers, and the audience.
