The public is invited to attend and see, hear and pose questions to the candidates. The live stream includes a chat function for those watching online to interact and also post questions for the candidates.

All candidates in both Republican and Democratic races have been invited; the races include Idaho Legislative District 1 and District 7 House and Senate; Bonner County Commissioner; and Bonner County Sheriff.

Not all races are contested, so after brief opening statements by all candidates who will be on the ballot, questions will be posed only for candidates in the contested primary races.

The Idaho primary is Tuesday, May 17.

The forum is sponsored by and the Sandpoint Reader.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
