The format used by the League of Women Voters/River Forest Service Club last week worked well. Candidates had time limits for introductions and answers. The audience was able to ask questions, but they had to write them down --- which prevented grandstanding, and kept things focused on the candidates.

Might we add time limits to questions - (one at a time) and answers. Otherwise, just a good old talk fest.

I saw this last election. Nice to have, but it was not well run. Too much time given for introductions and canidates blubs. People are their to ask qustions. If no one has any, then you cna go to canned questions or introductions.
