The forum begins at 6:30 p.m. inside the A.C. Jones High School lecture hall, located in the main foyer.
The public is invited.
Lisa Del Bosque, executive director of the chamber, said all candidates who want to represent Bee County at the local, state and national level have been invited to speak at the forum.
Candidates in contested races will each be asked three questions posed by Coastal Bend College faculty. The college faculty will draw up a list of 10 questions; candidates will blindly draw three numbers between one and 10 and those three numbers will correspond to three of the questions in the hat so that no candidate will know which question they will be asked, Del Bosque explained.
Contested races include county judge, Precinct 2 and Precinct 4 county commissioner, district clerk, district judge for the 36th congressional district, Precinct 3 justice of the peace, U.S. Rep. District 15, state Rep. District 35.
Candidates in uncontested races will be given an opportunity to address the audience for five minutes.
Uncontested races include county clerk, and Precinct 1, 2 and 4 justices of the peace.
A meet-and-greet is planned after the forum. Refreshments will be served.
