BACKGROUND:
The Board of Directors discussed use of the Town Hall meeting rooms for election-related activity at its planning session on September 17. Based on this discussion a revised policy is presented for adoption at the September 23 meeting. If the meeting room policy is adopted to allow a candidate forum to be held at the Town Hall facility, the following request is presented for consideration.

The Voter Awareness Council (VAC) would like to host a candidate forum for the Township Board Election candidates in The Township's Board Chambers. According to VAC president, Steve Leakey, “It is VAC’s intent to offer this forum service to all municipalities and school districts in Montgomery County. Forum formats would be tailored to the nature of the event and the hosting organization’s wishes. The events are totally non-partisan. VAC and the moderators take absolutely no position on any of the candidates or issues involved in the election.” Additional information on VAC is available on their website, visit www.vactx.org. 

In accordance with the proposed policy, the Township Board is the final authority for granting or denying any requested use of the Board Chambers for such purposes. 
RECOMMENDATION:
Board to determine course of action.
