The following was sent to us by Dr. Kevin Crow at USAO in Chickasha:
“This academic year, the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma’s Nita R. Giles Public Policy Program will host “Meet the Candidates,” a series of public forums where the contenders in Oklahoma’s 2018 gubernatorial election can discuss their platforms.
“Over the next academic year, each candidate will have the opportunity to give a short presentation of their politics and policies in the USAO Ballroom, followed by a question and answer period with the audience. Each forum will be held at 7 p.m. and is free of charge. The public is encouraged to attend.
