Part 3: Chandler City Council Candidate Forum

@ Chandler City Hall Council Chambers

The debate, hosted by the Chandler Chamber Good Government Committee, was a civil opportunity for candidates to discuss their ideas, policy positions, and current local issues. The Committee created questions in a non-biased and business-oriented fashion, for the purpose of defining the candidate's views on the government and its role in the business community.

After the Candidate Forum, the Good Government Committee will discuss candidate evaluations and make an official endorsement recommendation to the Chandler Chamber Executive Committee for review. The Executive Committee will present the final recommendations to the Chandler Chamber Board of Directors for final approval and an official Chandler Chamber endorsement. The Chamber CEO and staff are not involved in the endorsement process.
