NIAGARA FALLS – Candidates running for three open seats on the Niagara Falls City Council this November are scheduled to participate in a question-and-answer session at 6 p.m. Monday in the Rapids Theatre, 1711 Main St.

All seven announced candidates – four Democrats and three Republicans – have agreed to attend, said Rick Crogan, one of the organizers.

There also will be seven panelists asking questions, including educators, concerned citizens and business people, he said. Each panelist will be allowed to ask two questions and candidates will also be given five minutes to talk about their platform.
