Do you have a burning business-related question for Rep. Mark Critz and Keith Rothfus, the candidates running to represent the new 12th District in the U.S. House of Representatives? Here's your opportunity next week.
Critz, the incumbent Democrat from Johnstown, Cambria County, and Republican challenger Rothfus, of Edgeworth, are scheduled to take part in a Meet the Candidates breakfast forum sponsored by The Chamber of Commerce Inc. The event begins at 8 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 11 at The Chadwick in Wexford.
Each candidate will be given time to answer questions and to speak on topics related to business growth, job creation and economic development. They will not be discussing social issues.
In addition to questions submitted by the event’s partnering organizations, the candidates will take questions submitted by audience members.
Here’s where you come in.
Patch will be attending the forum—and we want to take your questions with us.
Leave your business questions in the comment section below this article and we’ll ask them at the event. As part of our comprehensive election coverage, Patch also will be blogging live from the forum, giving readers an opportunity to pose questions through the blog and to obtain answers in real time.
