First Congressional District candidates forum set


The Bucks County Chambers of Commerce and the League of Women Voters of Bucks County offer a U.S. Congressional Candidates Forum from 8 to 9:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 19.

The forum will be held in the Life Sciences Building Auditorium at Delaware Valley University, 700 E. Butler Ave., Doylestown. Doors open to the public 7:30 a.m.

Candidates participating in the forum for the 1st Congressional District include Republican incumbent Brian Fitzpatrick and challenger Scott Wallace, a Democrat.

The League is again partnering with the Chambers of Commerce to offer a forum to help the candidates running for the U.S. Congressional district get their message out and to help voters make informed electoral decisions by bringing their questions about issues to the forum.

“We appreciate that these candidates have agreed to participate in a fair and impartial forum that offers each of them an equal opportunity to voice their positions on important issues and respond to one another,” said League co-President Peggy Dator.

The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 General Election is Oct. 9.
