Virtual forums for candidates running in the April 6 election for Rantoul offices and the district’s two school boards are scheduled for February. The forums, hosted by Rantoul Public Library, will be held during the evenings of February 10 and 11 and recorded via Zoom. They will be posted online by February 15. The forums will be posted on various social-media sites and platforms, including the Rantoul Reformed, Rantoul Residents for Representation and Rantoul Term Limit Facebook groups. The forums can also be viewed by those who subscribe, at no cost, Rantoul Residents for Representation’s YouTube channel.
The deadline for the public to submit questions is February 3. They can be sent via Facebook messenger to Rantoul Residents for Representation or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent by call or text message to 815-317-6631.
Rantoul Residents for Representation is collaborating with the League of Women Voters to hold the forums. For more details see the News-Gazette article.
