The purpose of these forums are to publicly engage the candidates for City Council of Harrisonburg about their views, educate voters to help them reach their own informed electoral decisions, and to promote citizen participation in strengthening democracy. Both forums are moderated by the Fairfield Center and the JMU Institute for Constructive Advocacy and Dialogue and interpreted in English and Spanish by Better Together / Mejor Juntos.

All six candidates will be participating (in alphabetical order): Ted Byrd, DD Dawson, Alleyn Harned, Joshua Huffman, Chris Jones, Helen Shibut. The format of the forum is primarily question and answer. Citizens may request to ask a question to the candidates at the start of and during the forum.
