Didn’t Get to Attend Candidate Forums? Listen to Recordings Here!

Last week, in partnership with the Bozeman Public Library and the League of Women Voters, BPW wrapped up the end of our series of 4 public candidate forums for our local House District races, Gallatin County Commission, a Ballot Issues forum, and the Montana Senate race.

If you were unable to attend the forums but are still curious about the candidates’ stances on important issues for our community and would like to learn more about them before you turn in your ballot (election day is Nov. 6!), you can listen to recordings of the forums here:

Thank you to KGVM community radio for recording these forums, and for your dedication to providing the Gallatin Valley with pertinent local news!
