Election 2023: Commissioner Candidates Share Vision for County Leadership
As we prepare for the 2023 general election, The Columbia Montour Chamber is pleased to facilitate conversations with candidates for key political offices.
Montour County Commissioner Candidate Forum
On October 25, the Chamber hosted the candidates for Montour County Commissioner at the Montour Preserve, for a 90-minute candidate forum. Before the event, Chamber members submitted questions about economic development, energy, quality of life, transportation, childcare, leadership style, etc. Additionally, during a 10-minute break, live audience members submitted questions for the panel of candidates. The Chamber would like to thank Bob Stoudt and the team at MARC, whose facilities were perfect for the event. A recording of the event is embedded below. While several camera malfunctions occurred that prevented us from showing the video, our audio is crisp and no candidate response is edited. Additionally, to guide audience members, the Chamber has provided captions to show which candidate is responding to each question. We hope this helps you take full advantage of our panel discussion. Thanks to Trevor Finn, Rebecca Dressler, Scott Lynn, and Wesley Walters for participating in the event.
Columbia County Commissioners Candidate Forum
On Thursday, November 2, the Columbia Montour Chamber of Commerce will host a candidate forum for the candidates for Columbia County Commissioner in the Hartline Building at 7:00pm at Commonwealth University - Bloomsburg. Special thanks to Tim Pelton and the University, who are helping us to livestream the event to our YouTube channel. Tune in here on Thursday!
