Chamber to Host Moderated Sheriff Candidate Forum: TONIGHT

The Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce will host a public, moderated candidate forum for Sheriff’s Office candidates on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 5:30-7:30 pm at Northwestern State University’s Creative and Performing Arts Annex, in Magale Recital Hall, located at 143 Central Avenue.

Every candidate received a letter inviting them to attend their respective forum. With their letter, they also received a questionnaire, and a request to submit their answers back to the Chamber. Each candidate’s response were posted and are available to view at

This forum is free and open to the public. It will follow the same format as the School Board Candidate forum that was previously hosted by the A+ Coalition, an initiative of the Chamber. Each candidate will be given the opportunity to speak for three minutes. The audience will be given the chance to submit written questions to the candidates at the beginning of the event. Questions will be presented by the moderator, and to keep the forum fair, each candidate will have an allotted amount of time to respond to the questions posed. There will be a timer with a signal card to keep each candidate on track.
