CATS Candidates on Demand - video statements by local candidates for public office
You can now view video statements by local candidates on the Tuesday, November 4 ballot.
CATS offered all local candidates for public office the opportunity to have 3–5 minute candidate statements recorded free, then telecast on cable and streamed on the Web. CATS was the first community network in the country to offer free studio time to candidates, as well as live streaming and archive access to all local governmental meetings.
CATS is pleased to announce that The Library Channel is now available for streaming online.
