This April, voters in Colorado Springs will select six councilors from a field of more than 20 candidates. Voters will also decide on two ballot measures: a usage adjustment to the TOPS tax, and council pay. Ballots are due on April 2nd.

Candidates have participated in a number of forums leading up to the election; here is audio from two of those forums, hosted by Trails and Open Space Coalition and Citizens Project respectively. Please note that if a candidate is not included in the audio, that means he or she was not in attendance at the forum. TOSC Intros & Yes/No and Closing Statements include candidates from all districts.
