Election forums planned for Oct. 9 and 10 in Steamboat Springs

With voters poised to decide a lengthy ballot in November, the Steamboat Pilot & Today is hosting two forums on Tuesday, Oct. 9 and Wednesday, Oct. 10 at The Steamboat Grand.

The annual forum is hosted in partnership with the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors, Routt County Republicans, Routt County Democrats and the Economic Development Council.

The first forum on Oct. 9 will focus on candidates, and the second forum on Oct. 10 will focus on local and state ballot issues. Both events begin with a meet and greet from 5:30 to 6 p.m. where appetizers will be served and a cash bar will be available. The forums follow at 6 p.m.

“Due to the large ballot this year, we decided to hold two election forums,” said Lisa Schlichtman, editor of the Steamboat Pilot & Today. “There are many important issues facing our community at both the local and state levels. It is our hope these forums provide a venue for voters to learn about the candidates and issues and then use that information to make informed voting decisions this fall.”

Questions will not be entertained from audience members during the forums, but residents are encouraged to email potential questions to Schlichtman in advance at lschlichtman@SteamboatPilot.com.
