The Public Policy Committee of the Shakopee Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting Meet the Candidates events this election season and the public is invited to attend.
This year, the Committee has planned two forums; one for the Scott County Commissioner races, and one for the District 55 State House and District 55 State Senate races. We are partnering with other local organizations, including the Shakopee School District, to make the events informative and approachable for the voting public.
These events will give voters a chance to hear from each candidate before they vote in the November election. In addition, they will give voters a chance to have their voices heard. We are requesting that in the weeks prior to these events, Shakopee community members email their questions to the candidates for consideration in these forums. All questions can be emailed to email@example.com.
The Scott County Commissioner Forum for all five open Commissioner District seats will take place on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Shakopee High School Lecture Room.

The District 55 State House and District 55 State Senate Forum will take place on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Shakopee High School Lecture Room.

Immediately prior to each forum there will be an open house meet and greet for the candidates of both races to meet voters, those who are helping with the event and students involved in the Kids Voting Shakopee Program. As in the past, these events will be recorded. The forums will then be re-broadcast on area public access channels throughout Scott County leading up to the election. We also hope to make it available online following each event.
Please visit www.shakopee.org for additional information or contact Kevin Wetherille, Public Policy Committee Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to submit a question for one of the candidates.
