The Kalispell City Council is hosting two televised candidate forums for this year’s general election.

Candidates running for legislative districts that overlap the Kalispell city limits as well as Flathead County Commission have been invited to participate. The public is encouraged to attend these events to learn more about where the candidates stand on important issues that affect the community, including infrastructure, taxation, alternative funding mechanisms and public safety.

The first forum will be held Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. This forum will be for candidates from House Districts 6, 8, 9 and 11.

The second forum will be held Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. This forum will be for candidates from House District 7, Senate Districts 3 and 6, and Flathead County Commissioner.

The forums will be held in Council Chambers at Kalispell City Hall, 201 First Ave. E. The forum will be broadcast live on Kalispell’s public access channel — cable channel 190 — and then repeated at varying times up to the general election.

Mayor Mark Johnson will moderate the forums.

The general election is Nov. 8.
