You can come to Salem’s City Hall on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 6p and hear what the candidates for Mayor, Clerk-Treasurer and City Council say in their own words. 

Find out the answers to their questions and more and get a feel for who to vote for and hear what they have to say at the WSLM Political Forum from 6-8 p.m. at the Salem City Hall conference room.

The forum is sponsored by WSLM and WRLW TV and will be hosted by Becky White.

 
WSLM won the 3rd Consecutive Indiana Broadcaster’s Association’s Cardinal Community Service Award this past summer for the Public Forum’s. 
 
“I was very humbled to be chosen for a third year for the work WSLM does in our community and around Southern Indiana,” said White. “We try very hard to allow our local and regional candidates the opportunity to speak to the people in a way where the voters can hear exactly what they say and to be able to go back and listen to that again.”
 

 

Previous Cardinal Awards were for coverage and support during the 2017 Flood and for the WSLM benevolent program, Say Yes To The Prom Dress. 

The video of the evening will be streamed live on social media.
