Local chambers, Wake Education Partnership to host candidate debates

Wake Education Partnership and local area chambers of commerce are pleased to announce a series of school board candidate debates in September for all contested Wake County school board seats.
The times and locations for each debate are listed below. The debates will last 90 minutes with the exception of District 2, which will take approximately two hours due to the number of announced candidates.
The Partnership will develop the questions and moderate the events. The chambers are providing the locations and making sure chamber members are aware of the opportunity to hear candidates’ views about public school issues.

The format and questions for each debate will be the same. The events are open to the public.
