Chamber-sponsored candidate forum Thursday

April 17, 2013

Made up your mind over who to vote for in the May 11 city council and school board elections?

If not, plan on attending Thursday's Meet the Candidates Forum, scheduled for a 6 p.m. start in the Hall Center for the Arts.

The format will be simple.

“Each candiate will be allowed to speak for five minutes,” said Debbye ValVerde, Chamber executive director. “This will not be a question and answer forum.”

However, she added that voters will be able to meet one-on-one with candidates after the forum and ask questions at that time.

There are a number of contested elections in Howard County, including a three-way race for both mayor and city councilman in Big Spring.

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.

There is no charge to attend Thursday's forum.
