The Orchard Hills-Maplewood neighborhood association is hosting a forum tonight (July 14) at 7 p.m. for Ward 2 city council candidates in the Democratic primary election, to be held Aug. 5, 2014.
The forum will be held at the Traverwood branch of the Ann Arbor District Library.
There’s no incumbent in this race, because Ward 2 city councilmember Sally Petersen is running for mayor instead of re-election.
The Chronicle plans to broadcast live audio of the event. The live audio player is embedded below. After the event, it will be replaced with an .mp3 recording. Update: Several .mp3 files broken down by question are now included in the article in place of the live-stream player.
Previous Chronicle coverage of the Ward 2 city council race includes: “Ward 2 Candidate Forum: CTN Broadcast” (embedded video with transcript in a scrolling text box) and “Council Candidates Live: Ann Arbor Dems” (.mp3 audio files).
Community Television Network has pre-recorded some comments from candidates in all races. [link to CTN video-on-demand for council candidate comments ]
And the League of Women Voters provides written candidate profiles with responses to questions on its Vote411.org website. [Ward 2 Vote411.org profiles]
Listen below to the live broadcast from the Traverwood branch of the Ann Arbor District Library.
Under the audio player are two text boxes with identical content. They’re used to provide notes to the listener about what’s happening during the live broadcast. The first box forces the view to the bottom of the file so that a reader is always offered a view of the most recent notes. The second box does not force the view to the bottom of the file.
