Local Nonprofit to Host First-Ever Candidate Community Forum in Victorville – VVNG.com
VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) – Community leaders, faith leaders and public safety responders will come together soon to address the issues and challenges facing Victor Valley residents.
HALO Project HD will host the first-ever Mountain Movers Forum: a night of conversation, collaboration and partnership between faith leaders and residents of the High Desert community about the future of the region. The event is scheduled to take place Thursday, October 20 at the Victorville First Assembly Church, located at 15260 Nisqualli Road.
HALO organizers said the event aims to connect high desert churches with local leaders to encourage greater involvement in local government.
“As followers of Christ, it’s time to stand up, be bold and get involved – not just this election year, but every election year,” event organizers said. “With over 1,000 attendees expected, we will host a time of learning, sharing and prayerful listening.”
Among those invited are members of the city council, including the mayors of the four major cities, and candidates for open seats on the council. State and congressmen and candidates for those seats are also expected to attend, along with representatives of local public safety departments.
Speakers will each have 5 minutes to speak, with a timer present to indicate when their time starts and ends. A table will be provided in the church foyer for each speaker to display any informational material they wish to include in their speech.
This event will begin at 7 p.m. sharp, but attendees are encouraged to arrive early for a chance to connect with fellow attendees and community members. Food and refreshments will be provided after the forum.
The HALO HD Project is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for Victor Valley residents through community development and partnerships.
