New this evening a Somerset County Commissioner candidate forum was held at the Somerset Area High School Auditorium.
This event gave residents the chance to write down their questions, to learn more about each candidate’s stance, regarding specific topics.
There are 8 candidates running for the seat of County Commissioner for the upcoming year.
While the candidates have been out campaigning prior to this event, one of the organizers tell us this is the first time the candidates are doing this type of formal event.
The Executive Director for the Somersety County Chamber of Commerce tells us what makes this even more special is who’s running the event.
“This is being done by hgh school students. The Chamber and the Farm Bureau have been supportive, but its the student government and civics class of this high school, and they are actively involved. They are running the show.”
The Pennsylvania Primary election, will be on May 16th.
