A Gubernatorial Candidates Forum will take place at the Alexandria Technical and Community College Room 743 (Information and Technology Building) on Monday, October 4 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Gubernatorial candidates Tom Horner, Tom Emmer and Mark Dayton have been invited to participate in this event to speak to the voters of west central Minnesota and address questions relating to business, education and local community support, as well as statewide issues.
At the time of this release, Tom Horner’s and Mark Dayton’s offices have confirmed their plans to participate in the event.
Event attendance will be free of charge with meeting room admittance being on a first-come basis with the first 250 people being admitted (restricted due to room capacity level).
Due to high interest in event attendance, overflow seating with a closed-circuit television system has been organized in a nearby room for individuals who cannot be seated within Room 743.
Doors to the meeting room will be opened at 5:45 p.m. for the event. Parking will be in the ATCC south lot (near the incinerator on Jefferson Street) and west lot (near the corner of Jefferson Street and 18th Avenue).
The forum will include pre-selected questions being asked of all candidates by a panel of three community leaders from 6 to 8 p.m.
Event attendees will not have the opportunity to present questions to the candidates during the forum, but will have access to each candidate following the event in post-event meeting rooms.
Attendees are asked to refrain from bringing signs, banners, noisemakers, or other such items to this event.
This event is being organized by the Alexandria Area Economic Development Commission (AAEDC), and Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and hosted by the Alexandria Technical and Community College for the sole purpose of encouraging voter education and interaction with these three gubernatorial candidates.
