The Central Fort Bend Chamber Alliance’s Governmental Affairs Department is emphasizing the importance of May 14 to the City of Rosenberg’s future, and the department wants to make sure Rosenberg residents are well-informed when asked to help decide that future. May 14 marks the city’s bi-annual general election, in which all seven City Council Positions, including Mayor, will be on the ballot.
With a focus on voter education, the Chamber’s Governmental Affairs Department will host a Candidates Forum at 6 p.m. on April 18 at the Rosenberg Convention and Visitors Center. The forum is free and open to the public. It will be moderated by longtime Governmental Affairs Department member Marvin Marcell, with questions provided by Fort Bend Herald Executive Editor Bob Haenel and time kept by City of Rosenberg Police Officers. As in past candidate forums hosted by the Chamber, each candidate will have the opportunity to make a timed opening statement, followed by a series of prepared questions and their timed responses.
Each resident-qualified voter of the city may vote for only one candidate for Mayor and one candidate for each At-Large Council Position, and may vote for only one candidate for the single-member Council District position in the Council District where said qualified voter resides, and may not vote for any candidate in any other single-member Council District.
Early voting will run from May 2-5, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and May 9-10 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Lamar CISD Administration Building on Avenue I. Election Day voting will be at Rosenberg City Hall from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
