CANDIDATE FORUM 2022

The Harlan County Chamber of Commerce will host our third bi-annual "Meet the Candidates" forum on Thursday, September 29, 2022 at 6 p.m. at the Harlan Center in Downtown Harlan.  If you cannot attend in person, this event will be streamed LIVE on our Facebook page as well as aired on Harlan Community Television.

 

This is an opportunity for the public to have a chance to hear the candidates' takes on important issues affecting Harlan County.  We are asking the community to submit questions for the candidates, and we will narrow down those responses to three questions per candidate. 

We were again proud to partner with Harlan Community Television to televise the event for us live on their local analog and digital channels. 

Below is a list of candidates who have been invited to attend.  Those marked with an asterisk (*) have either declined to participate or we have been unable to reach them to confirm their participation.
