BATON ROUGE, LA(PPN)- Today, Community Organizer Daniel Banguel announced his community candidate forum in the North Baton Rouge area. Banguel partnered with the Capitol City Ques, where he is also a member of. The Capitol City Ques consist of all local Baton Rouge chapters of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated: Lambda Alpha, Lambda Kappa Kappa, Delta Tau, Beta Sigma, and Theta Kappa.
“We are excited to be a part of this candidate forum. As an organization that does not endorse candidates, it’s still as equally important that we showcase all candidates that want to represent our community and let the voters decide”, said President Lee Henderson, Lambda Alpha Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
The candidate forum will consist of School Board candidates from the following districts: District 2, District 3, District 4, District 5, District 6, and District 7. District 1, 8, & 9 ran unopposed! Also, all candidates for City Constable have confirmed their attendance.
Community stakeholders are excited about this forum.
“All elections matter, and it is important that the community is informed about the candidates, their experience, and vision toward the office they seek to serve in. I tip my hat off to this local organization of influence for creating this forum so that citizens will be able to see and hear firsthand who will potentially be their next elected officials. No office is insignificant, and no vote should be thrown away”, said 2016 Mayoral Candidate Braylon Hyde.
The forum will be held September 4, 2018 @6pm at Virginia College.
“We are so excited to host this forum at our college, this forum gives our students an opportunity to be engaged in their local community civically, we thank Mr. Banguel for organizing this terrific event,” said Virginia College President Joe Dalto.
The forum is expected to have close to 200 people in attendance.
“Hosting a forum gives our community stakeholders an opportunity to ask questions to their prospective elected officials. We have to make sure that we prioritize our local elections as we do our national races”, said Community Organizer Daniel Banguel.
Attendees are encouraged to get their early as seating capacity is limited.
