Citizens of Androscoggin County will have a chance to meet their legislative candidates on Thursday, October 21, 2010, 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 about all topics from the audience.
The event will give state legislative candidates the opportunity to discuss 2010 campaign issues with USM LAC students as well as members of the community who are invited to attend.
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 11th time USM’s Lewiston-Auburn College has hosted a state legislative forum and is being planned by Professor Marvin Druker’s Media and Politics class, the USM LAC Student Government Association, and the Office of Community Service.
