The Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce’s Government Affairs Committee is hosting Candidate Forums July 22 in Sheridan and July 29 in Dayton.
The forums provide an opportunity for those running in contested races for elected office in the Aug. 18 primary election to share information about themselves and their platforms. Each candidate will give a brief introduction, followed by a Q&A period.
The July 22 Sheridan forum will host candidates for state, county and city races. This forum will be held at the WYO Theater, with a limited audience of 50, and will be livestreamed on the Chamber’s YouTube Channel. It begins at 6:30 p.m. Registration is required by 5 p.m. Monday, July 20, for in-person attendance. Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis, and registrants will be assigned seats upon arrival at the WYO Theater. Due to the WYO Theater’s COVID-19 requirements, the Chamber cannot accommodate those who do not register in advance. The use of face masks is encouraged and may be removed once seated.
