Rogue Valley Community Television and the Ashland Chamber of Commerce have teamed up again this year to help voters make their election choices in State, County and local City races. The 2014 Ashland Chamber Election Forums debut on Channel 180 tonight and 181 tomorrow, and are available online anytime via the RVTV PEG Player. Here are the 2014 Candidates and races featured:
State Senate District 3: Alan Bates and Dave Dotterrer had a very close contest in the last election. 2014 shapes up much the same.
The State Representative race for District 5 features incumbent Peter Buckley and challenger Nick Card.
The Jackson County Sheriff Forum turned out to be a one-sided affair as current Sheriff Mike Winters didn’t show to debate fellow candidate Corey Falls. Candidate Falls was given the opportunity to weigh in on the issues.
Two Ashland City Council positions are being contested, the Forum for Position 4 features Biome Michael Erickson and Stefani Seffinger.
And the Ashland City Council race for Position 6 has Pam Marsh bidding to retain her seat against Theo White.
