Carson City Chamber of Commerce to Hold Primary Candidate Forum

Posted: Updated:
From the Carson City Chamber of Commerce:

Carson City voters are invited to meet and hear the candidates for Sheriff, Nevada State Senate and Assembly and Carson City Supervisor at the Chamber’s Primary Candidate Forum scheduled at the BAC Performance Hall on Wednesday, May 21st beginning at 6 p.m.

The Sheriff’s primary race has four candidates seeking that office and will be reduced to two or could be won in the primary negating the necessity for a general election vote.  This race is of the most interest to the voters.

There are two Republican candidates for Senate District 16 while the Democratic primary seat is unopposed.  The Assembly District 40 seat that will be relinquished by Republican Assemblyman Pete Livermore has two Republican contenders and the Democratic candidate is unopposed.  The primary winner in each race will proceed to the general election.

Although there is not a primary in the case of the two Carson City Supervisor’s race, the incumbent candidates have agreed to meet with their challengers.

The event will be televised live over ACCtv beginning at 6 p.m.   The Sheriff candidates will start off the evening followed by those seeking state office and culminating with the local supervisor race.  Each segment is anticipated to be one hour with 10 minute intervals for audience questions.   A Chamber committee has formulated the questions and will not release those questions until the evening of the event.

Early voting begins on May 24th and ends June 6th.  Election Day is June 10th. Carson City has a total of 24,909 voters as of April 2014: 11,509 Republicans; 8.160 are Democrats; 1,402 Independent American and 3,900 non-partisan.
