Forum for Lawrence City Commission candidates scheduled for Sunday

Lawrence City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St., Thursday, July 7, 2016

A forum for Lawrence City Commission candidates has been scheduled for Sunday, ahead of the Aug. 1 primary election.

The forum is set for 3:30-5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St.

As part of the forum, hosted by the Voter Education Coalition, audience members will be able to submit questions to the candidates. The forum will also be live-streamed on the city’s YouTube channel.

The terms of commissioners Lisa Larsen, Mike Amyx and Matthew Herbert are expiring this year. Eight candidates have filed for the election: Herbert, Larsen, Bassem Chahine, Dustin Stumblingbear, Jennifer Ananda, Ken Easthouse, Mike Anderson and Christian Lyche.

The primary election will narrow the field to six candidates for the general election on Nov. 7.
