Republican candidates will sit down to meet the voters this Wednesday at Arizona Community Church in Tempe.

Legislative District 18 Republican Committee and Ahwatukee Republican Women will host a candidate forum at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 23, at Arizona Community Church, 9325 S. Rural Road in Tempe. The forum will give residents a chance to meet Republican primary candidates for several offices.

Fourteen candidates are participating: Ken Bennett and Doug Ducey for governor, Mark Brnovich for attorney general, Jeff DeWit, Hugh Hallman and Randy Pullen for treasurer, Justin Pierce for secretary of state, Doug Little and Tom Forese for the Corporation Commission, Diane Douglas for superintendent of public instruction, Andrew Walter for U.S. House of Representatives in District 9, Tom Morrissey for State Senate in District 18, and Jill Norgaard and John King for state House of Representatives for District 18. All candidates for these offices were invited.

A social hour for the meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Attendees will be asked to sit down at a table and candidates will rotate from table to table so attendees will have a chance to meet the candidates in a more intimate setting than most forums and ask questions unique to their situation.

“It gives everybody a chance to be heard, have their questions answered,” said Mary Fritsche, first vice chair of LD 18 Republicans. “Most people by now have heard the candidate speeches, but they may have questions about where candidates stand. This gives them that opportunity … It gives them a chance to interact one on one with governor candidates and AG candidates — people they wouldn’t normally have an opportunity to talk to.”

This forum is open to the public and free to attend.

LD 18 Republicans meet the second Wednesday of every month at the Clarion Inn in Ahwatukee. The monthly meetings are for Republicans only. For more information, visit ld18GOP.com.

Early voting begins July 31.
