All but one of the candidates for office have committed to taking part in the forum.
Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Katie Simmons says the Chamber does not endorse candidates, but likes to inform them of issues important to the business community and give them a chance to address those issues in public. Issues like crime, economic development, infrastructure and homelessness are topics of interest.
