Next Rockford is organizing two candidate forums in March to inform voters about key issues with the Rockford City Council and the Rockford School Board. The forums are sponsored by the Rockford Register Star and presented by Next Rockford in partnership with the Rockford Chamber of Commerce and the League of Women Voters Greater Rockford. The group will host a candidate forum on Tuesday, March 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the downtown Sullivan Center, with feature candidates for the Rockford School Board. All School Board candidates have been invited to attend; only those in contested races will participate in the on-stage forum. Community members can submit question and topic suggestions via the Next Rockford Facebook page and on the Next Rockford blog at www.rrstar.com.
