UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

The candidates have the floor

The primaries for the Greensboro mayoral race and city coucil races have narrowed the field of candidates. Now as Election Day approaches, you’ll have an opportunity to ask the candidates questions – in person or by social media.

The UNCG Alumni Association’s Spartan Legislative Council will present a digitally interactive Greensboro Municipal Candidate Forum Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. The forum will be held in the Virginia Dare Room of the Alumni House.

The candidate forum will consist of question and answer sessions, discussions on various topics and community updates. Questions may be submitted in advance via email at alumni@uncg.edu or via UNCG Alumni Association’s Facebook page and via Twitter (@uncgalumni). Audience members will be able to ask questions live during the forum by way of these social media options – as well as in person.

All 2011 Greensboro Municipal candidates are invited. The moderator for the evening is UNCG alumnus Lee Kinard ’74, ’77 MA, ’88 EdD.

The UNCG Alumni Association is honored to sponsor one of the first structured platforms to use Social Media to involve the entire community in the Greensboro Municipal elections.

The UNCG Spartan Legislative Council Political Forum is one of several events that will take place during the upcoming months hosted by the UNCG Alumni Association.
