Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce are proud to bring a virtual candidate forum and meet and greet as part of our mission to inform and educate businesses and the community about the candidates running in the August 2020 Primary Election.
Organizers invited all Candidates for the 105th State House race, the 107th State House race, as well as the 1st Congressional District race.
Like an in-person event, the virtual forum is intended to be non-partisan and unbiased in nature with the purpose of giving the voters a fair understanding of the candidates’ views on issues.
All candidates were asked to submit a short video for a virtual meet & greet as well as participate in a moderated virtual forum. We invite you to watch all the content provided.
For each race, there is a forum video as well as a playlist that includes each candidate submitted meet and greet video.
We remind you that your vote counts! Primary Election Day is Tuesday, August 4th!
