The Front Royal-Warren County Chamber of Commerce will host Candidates Forums on Thursday, October 17th at E. Wilson Morrison Elementary School and Thursday, October 24th at the Warren County Government Center beginning at 7 p.m.

The October 17th forum will include candidates for Board of Supervisors, Clerk of Court, and Sheriff. The forum on October 24th will include candidates for Town of Front Royal Mayor, House of Delegates 15th, 18th and 29th Districts, and Senate of Virginia.

These forums offer community members an opportunity to listen to both local and state candidates answer issue-based questions and give voters insight of the candidate’s goals should they be elected. The public is encouraged to attend, and the forums will be available for replay following the program.

Candidates will answer questions posed by a moderator, as well as questions submitted by the public in advance or at the program. All submitted questions will be screened before giving them to the moderator. Only questions that are issue-based and are relevant to all candidates will be posed. Anyone wishing to submit questions for consideration prior to the event should email them to info@frontroyalchamber.com or drop them off to the Chamber office. For more information, contact the Chamber of Commerce at 540-635-3185.
