Candidates Forum for the runoff elections in Carrollton, the conversation will be about building a cohesive Carrollton.
The City of Carrollton has earned a reputation for its greatness and location, and now it is our duty to set ourselves as an exemplary town in social cohesion, where the God given diversity of each one of the 130,000 of us would function cohesively to build a safe, secure and welcoming Carrollton.

“Unlike all the previous candidate forums, this meeting will focus on building a cohesive Carrollton, indeed in the previous meetings, I had forwarded the same question but the candidates did not get a chance to respond due to time constraints.” said Mike Ghouse, President of America Together Foundation.
The candidates will be asked to share their approach on building a cohesive Carrollton, and how they will include and care for the well being of every resident. They will be further asked to give a one minute response to their take on issues such as: Civil Unions, Racial profiling, Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism and immigration reforms.
The early voting begins on June 6th leading to the Election Day on Saturday, June 18, 2011.
The candidates are invited to submit a write up on each issue up to 50 words and 250 words for how they are going to achieve the social cohesion, it will be printed in a small booklet to be handed out to the public and the media, and will be published at www.Carrolltondiary.com as well as sent out as a story to the media. This must be submitted before 10:00 PM on Monday June 6th to go to the printer.
