This election year, #oakmtg contributers are organizing a social media debate with the purpose to engage as many Oakland residents as possible in the 2014 Mayoral Election.
The #oakmtg debate planning team will not endorse a candidate, nor encourage individuals to vote for a particular candidate or issue. We just want to spark resident interest in candidates and offer a unique way to interact with them: via social media!
During the summer we will hold candidate chats on Twitter where candidates will be allowed to answer questions using the #oakmayor hashtag. This will take place June- July, on Thursday and Sunday evenings.
Our Live Forum will be held August 21, 2014 7-9 pm at City Council Chambers, 1 Frank Ogawa Plaza, Oakland California 94612. The forum will be shown live on KTOP Comcast Ch. 10. Uverse Ch. 99 and livestreamed on the KTOP website.
The questions will be based off of public submission. Most popular question will be asked during the Live Forum and during the social media chats on twitter.
Submit your questions here (you must have a gmail account): http://tinyurl.com/OakmtgForumQuestions
or via that comments on the Event Page and we will add them to the Google Moderator account above.
