Candidate forum set for Thursday

April 13, 2013

The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce will host a Meet the Candidate Forum at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Hall Center for the Arts.

The forum gives candidates an opportunity to introduce themselves prior to the May 11 city and school board elections.

“We're encouraging everyone to come out and meet each of the candidates,” said Debbye ValVerde, Chamber executive director.

ValVerde said each candidate will be allowed to speak for five minutes.

“This will not be a question and answer forum,” said ValVerde, noting that “The audience will be able to meet one on one with the candidates after the forum.”

The Chamber has mailed letters to each individual in Howard County who is running for office. Those who have not responded or have not received a letter are encouraged to contact ValVerde by Tuesday at 432-263-7641.

“The Chamber encourages everyone to get out and vote,” said ValVerde. “The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce does not endorse candidates, but we do support our members and hope the candidates look at what issues our local businesses, education, agriculture and other entities are faced with at this time and what will they see in the future.”

Early voting will begin April 29.

Hall Center for the Arts is on the campus of Howard College, located at 1001 Birdwell Lane.

The forum is being sponsored by the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce, Big Spring Herald, Howard College, KBST Radio Group and KBYG/KXCS Radio.
