Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Morinville, the All Candidates Froum was attended by more than 200 residents who came to hear the candidates speak.
For the first part of the program the candidates drew numbers before hand for their speaking order and each was allowed three minutes to speak from the podium to the audience. Afterwards the candidates moved to individually assigned tables located around the hall and foyer and the public invited to meet the candidates at their table for three minutes. Rotary member Gib Boddez was sheriff and time keeper for the event. Boddez wore a large black hat which he removed with 30 seconds left for the speaker to finish their speech.
Mayoral candidate Christa Naughton was the only candidate not in attendance, having previously announced her intention to withdraw from the race due to health concerns.
