Meet the Candidates
The Jaycees believe that young professionals should be civically engaged, which includes voting in public elections. To provide individuals an opportunity to talk to local candidates and learn more about their platforms, the Livonia Jaycees hosted a Meet the Candidates and Voter Registration forum at Madonna University on September 13th. Community members and Madonna University students were invited to meet the candidates running for local offices during the Mid-Year election in a "speed dating" style format. Additionally, representatives from two Ballot Proposals were also invited to share information with voters.
Thank you again to the candidates and organizations who joined us for this event!
