Presidential Candidate Forum
The Black Hawk County Democrats are sponsoring a candidate forum for the Democratic presidential candidates on Friday, October 12th at Waterloo West High School Auditorium, 425 East Ridgeway Ave. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. and conclude by 9:00 p.m. The candidates invited to participate are: Senator Joe Biden, Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Chris Dodd, Former Senator John Edwards, Former Senator Mike Gravel, Representative Dennis Kucinich, Senator Barack Obama and Governor Bill Richardson. Since campaigns are still setting their schedules for the month of October, it is not yet clear which ones will be attending. Grant Price will serve as moderator.
The agenda will include prepared questions addressed to all candidates followed by closing statements and an opportunity for each candidate to have a break out room to meet with Democrats informally. Tickets are $5.00 and can be obtained from the Black Hawk Democratic Party Headquarters, 500 A Jefferson Street, Waterloo, 319-236-2992, from Chair Pat Sass, 319-233-9800, from Roger White, 319-266-9901 or may be purchased at the door starting at 6:00 p.m. the night of the event.
This is an excellent opportunity for Black Hawk and surrounding county residents to meet, learn about and compare several of the Democratic candidates at the same time. It is also an opportunity to support the Black Hawk Democratic Party’s Precinct Caucus Fund and help defray the party’s caucus expenses.
