Chamber candidate forum set for June 22

The Rockford Chamber of Commerce (RCC) is proud to announce that they will be hosting a candidate forum from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 22. The event will take place at Boulder Creek Golf Club, 5750 Brewer Ave., Belmont, and will feature the candidates running for Michigan’s 73rd District House of Representatives.

The 10 candidates—nine Republicans and one Democrat—were all invited to this exciting event so they could get their message out to their potential voters. The candidates are vying for the seat that Rep. Tom Pearce is vacating due to term limitations. The seven appearing as of most recently are: Bruce Hawley (R), Jeanine Herlacher (R), Paul Hibbard (R), Steve Jazwiec (R), Peter MacGregor (R), Tom Norton (R), and Dennis Smith (R).

Dr. Michael Shibler, superintendent of Rockford Public Schools, will be moderating the event. The forum format will allow for each candidate to address the crowd for five minutes and then the moderator will ask the candidates questions that the attendees will have submitted during the actual event.

Cost for the candidate forum will be $10 and reservations are required. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served. Please call Jeannie at (616) 866.2000, or e-mail membership@rockfordmichamber.com at your earliest convenience so the RCC may plan for the event. Deadline for reservations is Thursday, June 17.
