Catch a video preview of Dave Heilmann's and Sandra Bury's opening statements from Tuesday's mayoral candidate forum before it hits the airwaves on Oak Lawn's government access channel.
Residents packed the cafetorium at Oak Lawn-Hometown Middle School to watch the two candidates face off against each other after earlier attempts to schedule a candidate forum fell apart.
Tuesday's forum was organized by the Palos-Orland League of Women Voters and moderated by the league's president, Barbara Pasquinelli.
Heilmann was the first candidate to make a 10-minute opening statement after rolling a two on the die (Bury rolled a one). The candidates went in reverse order for their closing statements.
Watch the videos of their opening statements.
The two candidates exchanged ideas and the occasional jab for a little over an hour. The delayed broadcast of the forum is expected to be up on Oak Lawn's government access TV channel sometime Wednesday afternoon.
Residents can watch the forum in it's entirity on Ch. 4 (Comcast/Xfinity) or Ch. 99 (AT&T).
After you've viewd our videos and/or the forum come back and tell us how you think both candidates performed in the comments.
Come back later for a full recap and more video of the mayoral forum.
