The City of Youngsville is represented by five (5) Councilmembers who all run at large in what is known as Divisions. This means that each represents the entire city not just a district. Each candidate may qualify in any of the five Divisions A, B, C, D, E. Since the candidate will represent the entire city, the electors (registered voters) may vote for one candidate in each of the divisions where there is opposition. In the 2018 elections to be held on November 6, 2018 the voters will have the opportunity to vote for 3 Councilmembers, one in Division B, one in Division C and one in Division E.
Mayor Ken Ritter and Youngsville Police Chief Rickey Boudreaux are hosting a Youngsville Candidate Forum this Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 6pm at the Youngsville Sports Complex Recreation Center, located at 801 Savoy Rd in Youngsville.
Youngsville City Council Candidates for Divisions B, C, and E have been invited to participate in this candidate forum. Candidates will make opening statements, answer questions and make closing statements. The event is free and open to the public.
The public may submit questions between 5pm – 6:00pm. Submitted questions will be selected by an independent panel prior to being asked by the moderator. Questioning will not be allowed from the audience directly to the candidates.
