Candidates to come to forum, 2 meetings

October 10, 2008


— The Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce has scheduled two "meet and greet" get-togethers for candidates. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Republicans running for office will be at the Lodge. On Wednesday, it's the Democrats' turn at the same time and place.

"The idea behind it is to just get to know the candidates for office," said Ivan Huntoon, president of the chamber. "It's an opportunity to get to know them as people, not just a name on a sign in the yard."

The two meetings will be sandwiched on Tuesday by a candidate forum sponsored by Baker University students. It will be at 7 p.m. in Mabee Hall, Room 100.

Scheduled for the forum are state Senate candidates Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, Roger Pine, R-Linwood, and Patrick Wilbur, L-Lawrence. State representative candidates Tony Brown, D-Baldwin City, and John Coen, R-Baldwin City, will also be there.
