NCTV Candidate Interviews

In preparation for the upcoming elections, NCTV17 invited the candidates running for Naperville Mayor, Naperville City Council, Indian Prairie School District 204 Board, and the Naperville Park District Board to sit down for a TV interview.

NCTV17 Executive Director, Liz Spencer, spoke with each candidate for 8-9 minutes about why they are running for office, their qualifications, what issus they feel are important, and how they describe their leadership style. Candidates also had an opportunity to tell the viewers a little more about themselves as people, not just as a candidate.

Starting March 1 you can tune in to Channel 17 in Naperville (Comcast & WOW! subscribers) and Channel 99 (AT&T UVerse) as well as online here and watch these interviews.
