Hosted by the Town of Cary, the Cary Community Candidate Forum is a forum for Town Council candidates in the Fall 2017 election and subsequent run-offs. The 2017 forum will follow the format of the 2015 forum; watch past forums.
Starting September 5, watch the forum on Cary TV Spectrum channel 11 or AT&T Uverse channel 99 daily at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. unless superseded by a Town Council meeting live cablecast or replay.
