Candidate forums are held by the Public Affairs Committee of the Brooking Area Chamber of Commerce. These forums provide those seeking elected positions a fair and open method to express their views so community members can understand their positions and make informed voting choices.
The County Commission forum will begin at 9:00 AM. The County Sheriff forum will begin at approximately 10:15 AM. Both will be broadcast on the local channel.

To assist us in organizing questions and ensuring all relevant topics are covered, please email your questions for candidates at least 24 hours ahead of time (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Brookings Area Chamber of Commerce is not a political action committee nor is it an arm of local government; we do not endorse political candidates at any level of government.
