WORLAND – The five Republican candidates running for two seats for Washakie County Commissioner will appear in a public forum today (Thursday) at the Worland Senior Center, giving the voters an opportunity to hear first hand what they have to offer.
Incumbents Terry Wolf and Ron Harvey and challengers Randall Adams, Jim Butterfield and Dale Wagner have all accepted the invitation to participate in the event.
During the noon meeting, each candidate will speak for three minutes, introducing themselves and explaining why they are running for public office, center Director Wendy Fredricks said.
Moderator Steve Cady will ask each candidate one or two questions, giving them equal time to respond.
The forum will be opened up to the audience to ask further questions which each man will have the chance to answer.
People will gather in the dining hall where diners can finish their meals as the five begin their exchange. Fredricks encourages people to arrive early to get settled before the forum begins. The center will start serving lunch at 11:30 a.m.
A second forum will be held at the Worland Senior Center on Thursday, July 31 from noon to 1 p.m. to introduce the public to candidates running for Washakie County Attorney. Incumbent Marcy Argeris and challenger John Worrall will follow a similar pattern as the program for the county commissioner candidates.
Whether planning to come for the meal and forum or for the purpose of hearing what the candidates have to say, the public is welcome.
