Meet Farmington school board candidates at community conversation

Farmington Area PTA Council and the League of Women Voters-Oakland Area will co-host an October 17 Community Conversation about trust in state government, and a chance to meet Farmington school board candidates.

Held in partnership with the Center for Michigan, a nonprofit and nonpartisan “think-and- do” tank located in Ann Arbor, the 90-minute discussion begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Maxfield Education Center, 32789 W 10 Mile Rd, Farmington.

Participants will talk about their biggest barriers to trusting state government, as well as their ideas for what it would take to improve trust. Topics will include state government services, management of the public purse, and oversight of Michigan’s political system.

This will be one of 150 structured dialogues taking place from now through the end of 2016. Altogether, the participants will include more than 3,000 Michigan residents from all over the state. Participants will also get a chance to mix and mingle with school board candidates; all 13 have been invited to attend.
