A non-partisan forum for Valley Fire District (GVFD) Board candidates has been scheduled for 6 p.m., Thursday, October 20, 2016, at the GVFD Public Safety Training Center located at 423 S. Colorado in Golden Valley.

The forum will give each of the four candidates, Randy Osborn, Gary Juneau, Mark Vanik and Bill McCarter, an opportunity to provide the residents with information about their backgrounds; give the residents a chance to ask questions of the candidates, and to see what their goals, agendas and priorities are if elected.

The host and moderator for the forum is long time Golden Valley resident Butch Meriwether.

The doors will open at 5:15 p.m., so residents will have an opportunity to speak with current elected officials, those who won seats in during the primary election and those competing during the general election on Nov. 8, 2016, who choose to attend the event.

Residents are encouraged to email their questions to meriwether@frontiernet.net that they would like asked of the candidates.

If you have any questions, please contact Butch Meriwether via the aforementioned email or call him at (928) 530-8988.
