How it works:
There will be seven question groups, each with a Group Captain who will keep the questions moving and will have some prepared questions from the sponsoring groups to get the ball rolling. The Group Captains will also make sure everyone who wants to ask a question gets a chance.
After seven minutes, a bell will ring and the candidates will move the next group. The groups will have numbers so candidates will move to the next numbered group.
After the “Speed Questions”, candidates and voters will have a chance to mingle over refreshments.
Candidates for Winnebago County Chairman and Coroner will present their views at an upcoming forum. Frank Haney and John Nelson are running for County Chairman. Bill Hintz and Frank Fitzgerald are running for County Coroner. All candidates will speak to their positions with a Meet & Greet to follow. The event is free and open to the public. Sponsors for the event are the League of Women Voters Greater Rockford, Rockford University, American Association of University Women, and WTVO Eyewitness News.
Invitations have been extended to more than 30 candidates at the local and state level. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and engage in informal discussion with the candidates while enjoying refreshments.
