Citizens of Androscoggin County will have a chance to meet their legislative candidates on Wednesday, October 24, 2012, when the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College hosts a “State Legislature Candidate’s Forum.”
All state legislative candidates whose districts are completely or partly in Androscoggin County have been invited to participate in this event. Each candidate will address what they think are the key issues that face higher education in the state of Maine and how they propose to address the issues as a state legislator. Following their presentations the candidates will answer questions from the audience.
The event will give state legislative candidates the opportunity to discuss 2012 campaign issues with USM students and Senior College members as well as citizens of the community. All are welcome. The event will be live-streamed on the internet on the Sun Journal’s website at www.sunjournal.com.
A reception with refreshments will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the candidate forum beginning at 7:00 p.m. After the forum there will be an opportunity for candidates to meet with voters.
The event is the 12th time USM LAC has hosted a state legislative forum as it now celebrates its 25th Anniversary. The USM LAC Student Government Association, the LAC Office of Community Engagement, and Senior College at USM LAC are sponsoring the forum.
USM’s Lewiston-Auburn campus is located at 51 Westminster Street in Lewiston. The event will be held in room 170.
