Chamber of Commerce to Hold Political Forums
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - The Paducah Chamber of Commerce has announced two upcoming political forums.

The first will be the program for the Power in Partnership breakfast on September 5th at 7:30 am. The event will be held at the Julian Carroll Convention Center. Whitlow, Roberts, Houston, and Straub is the sponsor.
Featured in the program will be Court of Appeals Judge Shea Nickell and State Senator Whitney Westerfield, candidates for the Kentucky Supreme Court. Also during the program, members of Leadership Paducah Class 33 will be introduced.

The second forum will be the program for the Power in Partnership Luncheon on October 3rd at 11:30 am, and will also be held at the Julian Carroll Convention Center. Paducah Bank is the sponsor.

This program will feature the Kentucky Gubernatorial candidates, Governor Matt Bevin and Attorney General Andy Beshear.

Representatives of four western Kentucky media outlets will ask questions to the candidates at this forum, and it will be broadcast live on WKYX, and other local media.

Attendees will be asked to follow these guidelines: No campaign banners, brochures, buttons, pens or other campaign materials or promotion activities will be permitted by attendees or candidates; however, the candidate may wear one button or a name tag as a means of identification. Supporters must be respectful and courteous. No unruly behavior will be allowed, and those who do not follow these rules will be asked to leave. Recorded images may not be utilized for advertising or marketing purposes by the candidates, or their campaigns, and the audience will be asked to remain silent during the forum, and to refrain from responding to any candidate’s answers or comments.

Those planning to attend that are not Chamber Power Card holders will need to make reservations by calling the Chamber at 443-1746, or online at Reservation deadlines are September 3rd at 5:00 pm for the first forum, and October 1st at 5:00 pm for the second.
