On April 16, 2015, the Fulshear Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a candidate forum at the Irene Stern Center in Fulshear, so that the eight candidates running for the two open city council positions could be represented to the voters. The intent of the moderated forum was to allow members of the community to ask questions of the candidates and hear their responses.
Here are the photos of the Council Member Candidates that attended:
