The Parker Area Chamber of Commerce candidate forum will be held Oct. 17 at the Parker Arts, Culture and Events (PACE) Center. The forum will allow state Senate, state House, county commissioner and town council candidates to talk about issues concerning the town, county and state.
The questions will not be released beforehand. Each candidate will get one to two minutes to answer each question, of which there will be about five. The forum will begin with the state Senate candidates, followed by the House candidates, county commissioner candidates and finally the Parker town council candidates.
The forum runs from 6 to 8:30 p.m. From 8:30 to 9 p.m. there will be a meet and greet with the candidates. There are 10 candidates running for three at-large town council seats.
Douglas County School District Superintendent Thomas Tucker will also talk about two ballot measures that seek to increase funding for the district.
According to the town's website, ParkerOnline.org, councilmembers are responsible for making policy decisions for the town and to enact and enforce ordinances. Councilmembers also hire, supervise and direct the town administrator.
The election for the three Parker Town Council candidate seats will be on the Nov. 6 ballot in conjunction with the Douglas County election.
