FAIRBANKS — The Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce holds the first of two state candidate forums today in advance of the Nov. 6 election.

Six candidates for Senate districts A, B and C will take part in today’s forum. Sens. Joe Thomas, a Democrat, and John Coghill, a Republican, are vying for the District A seat. Democratic Sen. Joe Paskvan and Republican challenger Pete Kelly, a former state senator, are seeking to represent District B. Republican Click Bishop and Democrat Anne Sudkamp are competing for the District C seat.

The forum will be moderated by Lorna Shaw of Sumitomo Metal Mining Pogo LLC.

The second forum, scheduled for Oct. 30, will be a more crowded field, with 11 candidates vying to represent House Districts 1, 2, 4, 5 and 38.

Both events are scheduled for noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Carlson Center.
