Forums added to schedule

Three all candidate forums have been added to the calendar for those running for Area E director.

All-candidate meetings have been set for Greenwood and Area E races in the Nov. 15 election.

The Big White Chamber of Commerce held an all candidates forum last night (Oct. 22) for the three candidates in running for the Area E rural director seat; incumbent Bill Baird is being challenged by Vicki Gee and Bill Bosovich.

Area E electors will have two other opportunities to question the candidates: one hosted by the Rock Creek Boundary Fair Association at the Rock Creek fairgrounds pavilion on Monday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.; and by the Beaverdell Community Club on Thursday, Nov. 6 in the Beaverdell Community Hall at 6:30 p.m.

These Area E candidate forums are in addition to the invitation put out to the candidates to appear alongside the Midway village council candidates in Midway on Tuesday, Oct. 21 sponsored by the BCRCC.

An all candidates forum for Greenwood mayor and council will be hosted by the Greenwood Board of Trade at McArthur Centre on Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m.
