First Kalamazoo City Commission forum of the short election season held over the weekend


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- 13 of the 15 City Commission candidates turned out Saturday afternoon, the first of a series of election forums that will be held between now and the election, just a month away.

The forum was sponsored by the League of Women Voters and WKZO at Friendship village. Six of the 7 incumbents are running for reelection.

They stressed that there will soon be a new City manager and that their experience is needed to make a smooth transition.Many of the challengers have spent time serving on city task forces, committees and commissions. 

The group represents a diverse cross section of the community, giving voters plenty to choose from and a number of ways to choose.
