In a joint effort, the Franklin County Consortium for Good Government, the League of Women Voters, the Rotary Club of Dublin Worthington and the American Association of University Women's Worthington branch have scheduled a local candidates forum Tuesday, Oct. 24, at the McConnell Arts Center, 777 Evening St. in Worthington.

Candidates for Worthington City Council, the Worthington school board and Sharon Township trustee have been invited.

Each of the 23 candidates invited will be allotted one-minute opening and closing remarks, and a moderator will ask each five questions during the forum.

Written questions for the candidates will be accepted on the night of the forum.

A "meet-and-greet" session is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. and the forum will begin at 7 p.m. Each race's portion of the forum is planned to last about an hour.
