The Pacific City – Nestucca Valley Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to our Annual Spring
Candidates’ Forum. The time and date is 6:30 pm, Thursday, April 7, 2022. The event will be held in
person at the Kiawanda Community Center in Pacific City.
The facility is located on Cape Drive just north of the Beachy Bridge and about a mile south of Cape Kiwanda. Plenty of street parking available. Doors will open at 6:00 for informal conversations with the public.
Invited guests include candidates for the Oregon Legislature including Senate District 16 and House District 32. Also invited are candidates for Tillamook County Commissioner position 3, District Attorney and Tillamook County Treasurer. We will also provide some time for representatives of financial measures on the ballot in South Tillamook County including a bond measure for Tillamook Bay Community College, a serial levy for the Tillamook County Library System and the office of Veterans’ Services.
The format will offer five to seven minutes for each participant to offer remarks followed by questions from potential voters. The facility has a good wireless sound system. The event may also be available via Zoom.
You may bring yard signs, campaign literature and advertising handouts if you wish. Light refreshments will be available.
Similar events in past years (pre-pandemic) have drawn 90 to 120 interested folks from our area, including the local press. The questions are lively, usually on point and test the candidates’ ability to think on their feet.
I realize the filing deadline is March 8, 2022. If someone files at the last minute, he or she will also receive an invitation as well. This email is sent early to be certain our event gets on your busy schedule.
I will appreciate your confirming attendance at the earliest opportunity.
