Posted on our Blog for Arizona image Calendar were 3 LWVGT and AZPM candidate forums for Arizona statewide offices in early October (6, 8, and 9). As of today, three have been cancelled, the ones for Attorney General, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Secretary of State. Instead, there will now be Conversation with the Candidates at PCC West Recital Hall:
Oct. 6, 6:30 p.m. Felecia Rotellini, Democrat for Attorney General
Oct. 8, 6:30 p.m. Dr. David Garcia, Democrat for Superintendent of Public Insruction and Terry Goddard, Democrat for Sec. of State
All statewide candidates were invited to participate and the deadline to respond was September 12, 2014. Apparently many of the Republican candidates declined to attend these Southern Arizona forums.
The other candidate forum for AZ Corporation Commission (2 Democrats vs. 2 Republicans) is still scheduled for Oct. 6, 7:45 p.m. So is the Governor’s one on October 9, 6:30 p.m. (although I heard that Republican Treasurer Doug Ducey will not be attending). These debates will still be held in the PCC West Proscenium Theatre, 2202 West Anklam Rd.
Stay tuned for any further updates or go to League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson website: www.lwvgt.org. Tickets are still required at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1dUH1anLwUg-l57IAzRMIjLkdb8WphJ0mrFAjj4W_bFU/viewform?c=0&w=1
