EEIA spokesman Steve Schwartz said, “We are excited to be sponsoring these events, as we believe it is an important venue where the residents of both communities can be introduced to the candidates."
In Godfrey, all candidates have been invited to attend. In Alton, due to time constraints and the number of candidates, only contested positions have been invited to attend.
In the past, the audience submitted questions to Mayoral candidates for Alton and Mayoral and Trustee candidates for the Village of Godfrey.
Due to the virtual format of these forums we ask that anyone wishing to ask a question please submit it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
or by mail to EEIA at PO Box 163, Alton, Il. 62002. All questions should be general in nature concerning issues related to each community and will be screened by an impartial committee of EEIA and NAGBC members. To be considered a question must be submitted or received by 5:00 pm. the day before either event.
The East End Improvement Association is an Alton based community service organization founded in 1899 that also sponsors the Alton Halloween Parade, the Alton Memorial Day Parade and scholarships for graduating High School students.
