A Local Candidate Forum will be held on February 7, 2018 at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center, hosted by the Lufkin/Angelina Chamber of Commerce’s Governmental Affairs Committee, the Young Professionals of Angelina County, and The Lufkin News. The candidates for every contested race in Angelina County are invited to participate in this pre-election forum. Each candidate has a 2-minute introduction period as well.
Co-moderators, Scott Skelton and Hilary Haglund-Walker will ask general questions as well as selected questions submitted by audience members. Constituents will have a chance to meet the candidates prior to the forum in the foyer of the Convention Center, where booths will be set up by the candidates to interact with the public.
The Candidate Forum will begin at 6:00pm on February 7th at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center. This event is open to the public and hopes to educate the public about local political races and candidates prior to early voting beginning on February 20th.
