September 20, 2016
Editor's note: This on-line notice has been corrected and clarified. It should have been more clear that this event is for Republican candidates. Also, Vail Daily reporter Randy Wyrick will not moderate the event.
EAGLE — Eagle County Republicans will sponsor the first of two town hall meetings Thursday. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Eagle County building, and will give voters a chance to meet Republican candidates for office.
Using a new format for presenting candidates and their positions, the first event will highlight the races for Fifth Judicial District Attorney and Colorado House of Representatives District 26.
The evening will begin with opening statements from the two candidates, followed a question and answer segment and finally, an open microphone allowing interaction with the community.
With several events planned using a forum style, this town hall will allow a more casual flow of information and a chance to get more details from each of the Republican candidates.
"We're very excited to sponsor a new and exciting format to showcase our candidates" Eagle County Republican Party Chairwoman Kaye Ferry said. "Hopefully it will engage the community in the process and provide a venue for getting to know the candidates more personally."
A similar event is planned for Sept.28 focusing on the Eagle County Commissioners' and Eagle County Treasurer's races.
