Citizens for Liberty will be hosting a Rapid City area local candidate forum on Thursday May 13 at 6:30 pm at Comfort Suites on Elk Vale Rd. and I-90. The forum will provide an opportunity for voters to learn about and ask questions of candidates for office in Rapid City, the Rapid City School Board, and Pennington County.
Local issues affect your freedom, your taxes and other matters just as much as national issues, so you won’t want to miss this chance to help you make a more informed vote. Environmentalists are busy at the city and county level, and what goes on in the public school system affects our children and our tax dollars.
The event is free and open to the public. Be sure to invite your friends!
