Two community organizations in Richmond have come forward to host all-candidates meetings, allowing the public to get to know the candidates and decide who to vote for.
Richmond’s civic election is just over a month away, and there are six mayoral candidates, 30 city councillor candidates and 26 school trustee candidates that have put their name forward.
So far, the Richmond Centre for Disability and Richmond Poverty Response Committee have announced they’re co-hosting an all-candidates meeting for city council and mayoral hopefuls at the Minoru Place Seniors Centre on Oct. 2 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The topic will be social justice on the local stage.
The Steveston Community Society is hosting another all-candidates meeting at the Steveston Community Centre on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m.
Details about where and when all-candidates meetings are being held are available on the City of Richmond’s website.
