All the state legislative candidates filed for election have accepted and plan to attend!
Running for state Senate district 20 are Republicans Duane Ankney of Colstrip (current district 43 House Representative), Barry Usher of Billings and Democrat Rod Mogen of Rosebud. Running for House district 39 is Democrat Howard Keller of Big Horn and Republican Geri Custer of Forsyth (current County Clerk of Rosebud County). Running unopposed in House district 41 is Patricia Rae Peppers of Lame Deer (incumbent).
Again, the event is not a debate. All candidates will be on stage together answering a series of questions asked by the moderator. Each candidate will have one opportunity to answer the question in turn. The format gives the audience the opportunity to get to know the candidates and find out why they chose to run for elected office.
Come out to the 2014 Colstrip Candidate Forum, hosted by Bicentennial Library at Colstrip High School auditorium, Friday, May 2 starting at 7:00 PM. It’s only two days away! I’ll see you there.
