With numer­ous con­test­ed races sched­uled for May’s pri­ma­ry elec­tion bal­lot, the Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce, WWKY radio and the Winchester Sun are host­ing a series of can­di­date forums.

“Candidate forums pro­vide a valu­able oppor­tu­ni­ty for Clark County res­i­dents to learn more about the peo­ple who are run­ning for pub­lic office,” said Tammy Moberly, President of the Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce.

The can­di­date forums will be con­duct­ed at the Clark County Coöperative Extension Office, 1400 Fortune Drive in the Winchester Industrial Park. Each forum will begin at 6 p.m. The pub­lic is wel­come to attend.

Forums will be open to the pub­lic, broad­cast on WWKY, and live-streamed on the cham­ber’s Facebook page.

Three sep­a­rate forums are sched­uled. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Here’s the schedule:

Monday, April 18 – Clark County Judge-Executive and County Magistrates;

Monday, April 25 – Winchester City Commission, Clark County Clerk, 73rd Legislative District State Representative and County Constables; and

Wednesday, May 4 – U.S. Senator and Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District.
