Livonia City Hall Auditorium Candidate's Forum: Livonia City Council and Livonia Mayor. These forums, held prior to the Primary election, have been completed, but are available here on video. The videos are still valuable to discern the opinions and positions of the candidates on the November ballot. Of the 3 candidates running for Mayor in the Primary, two (Laura Toy and Maureen Miller-Brosnan) have advanced to the November election. Of the 12 candidates running in the Primary Election for 4 City Council seats, 8 candidates who received the most votes are advancing to the November 5th General Election (Scott Bahr, Kathleen McIntyre, Brandon McCullough, Rob Donovic, Eileen McDonnell, Jim Davis, Gregory Coppola and Brian Duggan). The candidates were randomly divided into two groups and participated in 45-minute sessions.

CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE VIDEO 1 includes: Leo Weber, Gregory Coppola, Steve King, Scott Bahr and Gerald Perez. Only Gregory Coppola and Scott Bahr will be on the November ballot.

CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE VIDEO 2 includes: Rob Donovic, James Davis, Jr., Eileen McDonnell, Brandon McCullough and Kathleen McIntyre. ALL of these candidates will be on the November ballot.

Brian Duggan, a City Council candidate who will be on the November ballot, did not participate in the forum.
