Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe will conduct a candidates forum at noon Wednesday at Harrah’s Tahoe Special Events Center. The public is invited and the $10 cost includes lunch.
Advance reservations are required and may be made by calling (866) 801-8652. Leave a message with your name and how many will be in your party.
The forum will feature the candidates running for Nevada 2nd Congressional District, who are Jill Derby and Dean Heller, and candidates running for Nevada 4th District Commissioner, who are Nancy McDermid and Greta Hambsch.
The format of the forum will be as follows: Each candidate will have two minutes at the start of the program to present his or her qualifications and one minute for a wrap-up at the conclusion. Candidates will field a series of questions developed by a Soroptimist panel and presented by a moderator. Time permitting, questions will be taken from the floor. Each candidate will have the opportunity to answer each question.
Responses will be timed and the time allocated will depend on the complexity of the question.
