The invitations have been sent for the WLAF- Gray Insurance Meet the Candidates Forum.

On April 26, at 6:00 pm, at West LaFollette School, the public can hear from the host of candidates seeking office in August.

The forum will be open to the public while also being broadcast on WLAF Radio AM 1450 and FM 100.9 and televised live over WLAF TV 12 and 1450wlaf.com.
