We are getting a chance to hear from the women running in the municipal election in Stratford.

The Canadian Federation of University Women, a voluntary non-profit organization formed in 1919, is holding an all women’s forum Thursday night with the seven women running for office in Stratford in the October 22nd election.

The event is being held at the Queen’s Inn in Stratford starting at 7 p.m.

Sheila Clarke with the CFUW says the forum is open to everyone.

“This event is open to everyone, we really stress that it’s not just a women’s event, we invite all members of our community to come and meet and learn about the seven women candidates.”

Clarke adds she’s hoping more women will become interested in politics through the forum.
