The Advoc8te feels very honored to have been asked to pariticpate -- there are so many important issues effecting Ward 8 and we need to find out where the candidates stand on the issues. It's not enough to be popular or well-funded -- we need capable candidates who can help as well as ask for help.
If you have questions you would like to ask the Ward 8 candidates please leave them in the "Comments" section here or tweet them with the #LLDebate hashtag.
YouthNights@THEARC closed tonight with an open mic event. Ward 7 and Ward 8 families are encouraged to come out tonight and have some free fun in the community. YouthNights@THEARC are a safe alternative for youth during spring break. There are events, games, free snacks and free bus rides to and from THEARC.
Local youth are encouraged to come to THEARC tonight and participate in Open Mic night. Weather you are a singer, a poet, a rapper, a dancer, a comedian we want to hear from you tonight!
Parents, families and community members are also encouraged to attend and help us celebrate our last YouthNight!
See you tonight!
