Or fora if you are a Latin purist. There have been three forums so far and two to go. I will comment briefly in reverse chronological order.

First, the remaining forums. Tomorrow, the Chinese School of Chapel Hill will have a forum at 4 PM at McDougle Middle School. Then on Wednesday, October 26, at 7 PM there will be a forum at Lake Hogan Farms sponsored by the Lake Hogan Farms precinct of the Orange County Democratic Party.

The forum at Carol Woods was held Tuesday October 11, 2011, in the afternoon. As in the past, it was well attended and the questions were thought provoking. I do not think there is a record of that forum.

There was an online forum at Orange Politics conducted October 9 that can be read here.

The first forum of the season was held Wednesday September 28 at Chapel Hill Town Hall and was jointly sponsored by the PTA Council, NAACP, and PAGE. It was carried live on community cable and rebroadcast on cable and WCHL radio. It is also available online here. There is also a live blog of this forum on Orange Politics if you only have time for brief notes though I think watching the video will give better insight into the candidates. It was good to see these three organizations working together to organize a candidate forum.

As always, feel free to shoot me an email if there is something on your mind about our schools.
