In looking towards the immediate city and county general elections on Nov. 2, the Carbon County Chamber Of Commerce Board of Directors would like to invite all voters to participate in a "Meet the Candidates" night scheduled for Oct. 4 at the Carbon School District offices which is located at 251 West 400 North in Price from 5:30 to 7:30p.m.

The meeting will be held in sessions according to the offices that are up for election.

Session one starting, at 5:30 p.m. and running until 6 p.m. is for the candidates running for Carbon County Sheriff. In attendance will be incumbent James J. Cordova and challenger Robbins A. Radley.

Session two starts at 6 p.m. and will be a stage for all candidates running for Carbon County Commission. Those who chose to participate are incumbent candidate John Jones and opponent Travis Blackburn. Also for the other commisioners seat, that is open this year, Jae Potter will be there along with David Palacios.

Session three begins at 7 p.m. and is for Utah State Representative for District 69. Christine Watkins is running unopposed but is willing to spend time answering questions from her constituents in Carbon County.

A moderator will ask the candidates to answer the same questions in random order, thereby giving no candidate a "first or last" advantage. Ground rules and time limits will be followed so that every candidate will have ample time and opportunity to respond. Written questions from the public can be submitted that night. Also, at the end of the program, if time allows, candidates may entertain questions from the audience.

The Chambers goal is to introduce the candidates to the citizens in order to find out what their platform and goals are so that voters, can make an informed decision during the Nov. 2 general election.

The Chamber urges all residents to be part of the election process. There are no other elections where local citizens' votes count more or where they can be more involved than in city, county and state appointments.

Early voting begins on Oct. 19.
