The Daily Herald is sponsoring a candidate forum March 27 so you can decide whom you trust with millions of dollars of your tax money, with using your utility rate money wisely and with keeping you informed.

You want to know: Will the candidates carry forth residents’ mandate for an investigative audit of the city’s financial practices from 2011-2016?

Also: Do the candidates know how to save and wisely spend city money? Will the candidates share important information with you? Will the candidates pay attention to what administrators do?

That’s not all. You’ll learn a lot more at the forum.

The panel will be moderated by Deputy Managing Editor/Opinion Dave Miller and City Editor/Reporter Kyle Blankenship. Managing Editor Rose Fitzpatrick will open the event, and Digital Producer Angel Sierra will be tweeting it live.

Moderators will ask candidates a series of questions about residents’ concerns. Questions will be prepared in advance and will incorporate concerns from residents and the KDH Reader Panel.

To propose questions for inclusion, send your concerns to and put KILLEEN FORUM in the subject field of the email.

The event will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. March 27 at the Killeen Civic & Conference Center, 3601 S. W.S. Young Drive. Doors open at 6 p.m.
