Candidate’s forum tonight in Glenwood

GLENWOOD SPRINGS ” The 23rd annual Issues and Answers Night is set for tonight at Glenwood Springs City Hall starting at 6:30 p.m.

The four Garfield County commissioner candidates will be in attendance and will answer questions from a media panel and from audience members.

U.S. House and Senate candidates, along with state House and Senate candidates have been invited to participate.

The Issues and Answers Night event will be broadcast on Cable Channel 12. Ron Milhorn, news director of Colorado West/KMTS Radio, will moderate the event. Questions will be alternated between the candidates, who are given an allotted time to answer the question, along with a specific amount of time for rebuttal.

The event is sponsored by the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association, Glenwood Springs Post Independent, Cable Channel 12, Colorado West Broadcasting (KMTS) and local State Farm Insurance agents, Jeff Leonard and Dee McCown.

There are two county commissioner seats being contested this year. In the District 2 race, Democratic challenger Stephen Bershenyi, a blacksmith/artist, is looking to unseat three-term Republican incumbent John Martin.

In the District 3 race, former county judge Steve Carter is battling against Republican Mike Samson, Rifle’s dean of students. District 2 is currently held by Republican Larry McCown, who is not running for re-election.
