The Park Record and KPCW are hosting an election forum Tuesday, Oct. 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the New Park Resort Hotel, located at 1456 Newpark Boulevard.

Local candidates running for the Summit County Council, the Park City School Board and the Utah Legislature will be in attendance.

"There's no more critical information that you can get than who you would like to elect as your leaders," KPCW General Manager Larry Warren said. "So this is one of the best chances to meet all the candidates that are running and ask them questions personally."

Residents will be able to meet candidates during a social hour with free refreshments from 6 to 7 p.m.

"It's a long-time KPCW tradition to have a beverage and pizza feed for whoever comes," Warren said. "For many years, KPCW has run forums that include a social element because we love the idea of dialogue between people, and it's easy to do over pizza and a beer."

A question-and-answer session will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. where residents can ask the candidates questions in a forum setting. The event will also be broadcast live on KPCW 91.9 FM, though questions can only be asked by those attending the forum in person, or in advance through e-mail at .
