The Government Affairs Committee of the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce will host two candidate forums next week. On Tuesday, the forum will include candidates for state representatives, U.S. Representatives, county commissioners, Sheridan City Council and Sheridan Mayor.

Wednesday’s forum will include candidates for trustees of the Sheridan County School District #2 Board and the Northern Wyoming Community College District Board of Trustees. Both forums will be at 7 pm at the Sheridan High School Auditorium.

Chamber CEO Dixie Johnson says the forums are a good opportunity for people to get to know the candidates.

The Chamber forums aren’t the only way to hear from the candidates next week, as the Sheridan Senior Center will also be hosting their own candidate forums. On Tuesday at the Senior Center, the forum will include candidates for Sheridan Mayor, Sheridan City Council and county commission. Tuesday’s forum will be from 9:30 am to 11 am.

On Wednesday, also at the Senior Center, the forum will feature candidates for House Districts 29, 30, 40 and 51. That forum will be from 12:30 pm to 2 pm. The Senior Center will also host an additional forum for the House District candidates on Thursday, October 27 from 5:30 to 7 pm.
