Shawnee County Candidate Forum

Civil liberties are major issues in this November’s election. We know that voters want to hear about where candidates stand on everything from reducing mass incarceration to increasing citizen participation. That’s why we’re sponsoring Kansas State House Candidate Forums so that voters have the opportunity to hear directly from, and talk directly to, candidates about where they stand on citizen participation in voting and criminal justice reform. 

Join us for a candidate forum on criminal justice and citizen participation in Shawnee County on Wednesday, October 3rd. This forum is sponsored by Kansans for Smart Justice and the Kansas Coalition for Citizen Participation. All Shawnee County candidates have been invited. These forums are nonpartisan, free, and open to the public.

This forum will be moderated by Jim Ogle, former WIBW-TV general manager and current Executive Director of Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area.
