Too often during elections, voters only hear from the candidates through processed speeches and talking points.
St. Louis Park Patch wants to provide something different in 2011.
On Tuesday, Oct. 25, from 4-6 p.m., Patch is sponsoring at . Guests will be able to chat with candidates for City Council and school board in a relaxed environment, one-on-one, with no speeches or talking points—you set the agenda.
Every five minutes, we'll ring a bell, and you'll be able to move onto another discussion with another candidate. Want to resume a chat from earlier? That's fine, too.
What you talk about is completely up to you—this is your chance to get to know the candidates on a personal level before the Nov. 8 election.
Also, if you mention to your server that you heard about this event on St. Louis Park Patch, you’ll get 10 percent off your food order (does not apply to already discounted items, or takeout orders).
If you have any questions, please contact St. Louis Park Patch editor Michael Rose at 612.590.5984 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there!
