On April 25th, the Duncanville Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce co-hosted the 2013 Duncanville City Council Candidates Forum. This event gives the voting public the opportunity to come and learn more about who is running for City Council and School Board.
If you were unable to attend the forum and would like to see what the incumbents and candidates have to offer, you can watch the video posted below.
If you would like to view the forum that contains the Duncanville School Board candidates click here. If you prefer to watch your respective district and its candidates, see the videos below.
If you watch the last 45 seconds of the “At Large” video, you will hear the moderator announce that the City of Duncanville has decided not to post the video of the candidates forum on the city website.
Why is that? Was that a direct decision from the interim City Manager or was this voted on by the City Council? If it was voted on, it wasn’t posted or announced to the public.
Another question that should be raised, “Why did all of the incumbents for Duncanville City Council decline to attend the forum?” One can only guess. “All for one and one for all”…but I digress…
The following video was produced by the Duncanville High School Media Tech class-
