Voters invited to candidates forum for Seguin City Council District 3 race
Posted on 10/5/2017 7:52:00 AM.

(Seguin) -- Before you cast your ballot for city of Seguin District 3 City Council, you might want to spend a few minutes tonight learning a little more about each candidate.
The Texas Lutheran University Center for Servant Leadership and the Community Forum are teaming together to host a candidates forum for the District 3 Council race. The candidates forum is scheduled for tonight on the TLU campus.
Morgan Klaser, director of the Center For Servant Leadership, says each of the four candidates appearing on the ballot have committed to attending tonight's forum. She says they include Candidates Jeremiah Arrevalo, Dennis Estes, Jim Green and Jim Lievens.
"It's an opportunity for the TLU and Seguin communities to both come out to Texas Lutheran and learn about what the candidates' platforms are. Learn about what they are choosing to run for, just have a chance to ask a variety of topics. So, the candidates and the city of Seguin District 3 race that's happening this fall will each be able to share about their platform and then there will be a chance for the audience to ask questions as well," said Klaser.

Klaser says she hopes the community comes out and becomes a part of the process in determining local leadership.
"It's real important that the community is educated on the issues that are happening right now and will be happening for the next several years in their community. So voting is one great way for folks to be able to voice their opinions about issues going on and the best way to have your voice heard is to be informed about the folks you're voting for. So we try to make it really easy so that folks can just come out during that 6:30 to 8 o'clock time at TLU and be able to hear from those candidates first hand and be able to feel informed about their vote and educated on the issues that the candidates are running on," said Klaser.
Klaser says tonight's forum is just another annual effort by TLU and the Community Forum to make sure people are informed and that they stay engaged in what is happening around them.
"Last fall, we held one for the mayoral race as well as the school board race that was happening. So this is something anytime there's a local election, we really like to be able to host this for both the TLU faculty, staff and students as well as the Seguin community to come and learn about the candidates," said Klaser.

The candidates forum will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. today in Tschoepe Hall located in the TLU Dunne Center. Serving as the moderator for the evening will be former Seguin City Councilman Javier Cuevas.
