PACT-TV will rebroadcast Progressive Action’s city council candidate forum

PACT-TV will rebroadcast Progressive Action’s recent City Council candidate forum multiple times in the coming days, giving voters additional opportunities to compare candidates side-by-side before Tuesday’s Primary Election.

The forum, originally held in the Council Chambers on Wednesday, September 9th, will air on PACT-TV (Channel 7 on cable) on the following dates:

Friday, September 11: 12 p.m. (noon)

Saturday, September 12: 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Sunday, September 13: 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

“All the candidates did a great job at Wednesday’s forum,” Progressive Action President Barb Olsen commented. “We asked them about their commitment to restoring city library and recreation services and how they would pay for that, how they would vote on the sale of various city assets, how they would balance the needs of Duluth’s diverse neighborhoods, what they see as the Council’s role in job creation, how to balance the desires of Lakewalk-area residents with Lakewalk users, the effects of college housing, and much more. The candidates showed a real breadth of knowledge on the issues, which viewers will see for themselves in PACT’s rebroadcast of the forum.” The forum was originally carried live on KUMD radio (103.3 FM).
