City Council Candidate forum. The League of Women Voters of Billings and the Billings Public Library invite the public to attend an event on October 15th at 5:30 p.m. to help the public get to know the candidates for Billings City Council before the November election.

Facilitated by the League of Women Voters, the event will take place at the Billings Public Library, meeting the Community Room. All presentations are free and open to the public. The format for the event is threefold:

  • Introductions. All ten candidates for the five wards are invited to give a short introduction.
  • Questions and Answers. We will break into five smaller groups where a moderator will ask questions pre-submitted by the voters in writing. This format will facilitate casual conversations between the two candidates from each Ward.
  • Social Time. We will all meet back in the Community Room to enjoy light refreshments and visit casually with the candidates.

Regular member meeting. Speaker - Nell Eby is an enrolled member of the Assiniboine Nation, Fort Peck Tribes and is currently the Chair of the Native American Coalition, which is part of the Downtown Billings Alliance.

In 2020, the League of Women Voters will celebrate 100 years of women's suffrage. On a national level, the League is dedicated to going forward in our next 100 years while looking through a lens of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. With that in mind, we hope to gain insight into the struggles faced by Native Americans in our community with the goal of becoming more informed and responsive to a broader constituency as we do our work in the community.
