VC/BC commission candidate forum set
The Valley City Area Chamber of Commerce will be sponsoring a Candidate Forum at the Valley City HAC Gymnasium at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22.
Thursday Keith Heuser, administrator at Mercy Hospital and Chamber president, confirmed he will moderate the forum.
Heuser said all candidates for city commission and county commission have been invited to participate.
“All but one candidate said they can make it,” said Stephanie Mayfield, executive director of the Chamber. “I haven’t heard back from (city commission candidate) Arthur Frieze,” she said Thursday.
All candidates will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and explain why they are running for the position, respond to prepared questions from the moderator and if time allows questions from the audience, and provide closing comments.
Mayfield encouraged voters to email questions they have for candidates to the Chamber at Chamber@hellovalley.com.
Providing the event doesn’t run longer than expected, some questions may be asked by the audience, Mayfield said.
“It should be a great way to meet the candidates,” Mayfield said.
