Candidates in two Muskogee-area state House districts will discuss important state and local issues in a public forum Tuesday at the Roxy Theater in Muskogee.
The forum, which is free, is being presented by Oklahoma Watch, a nonprofit media organization, and Together Oklahoma, a nonprofit education and advocacy group. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register online.
The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, at the Roxy Theater at 220 W. Okmulgee Ave. Featured candidates will be Republican incumbent Avery Frix and Democratic challenger Jolene Armstrong, running in House District 13, and Republican Chris Sneed and Democrat Jack Reavis, running in House District 14.
“Since last session, Oklahomans have become involved in the political process like never before,” said Together Oklahoma Coordinator Sabine Brown. “We hope these forums will help voters get past political rhetoric and find out where candidates stand on the most pressing issues in the state.”
Fritze said the November election could be a pivotal one in Oklahoma. “Forums like these are important for connecting voters with those who will make decisions affecting their lives,” he said.
