Candidate forum

  • 03 Apr 2016
  • 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
  • Central Branch of the Lexington Public Library

All candidates in the 6th Congressional District primary election were invited to participate in forums on Sunday, April 3. In the Democratic race, two candidates, Nancy Jo Kemper and Geoffrey M. ‘Geoff’ Young accepted the invitation. Democrat Michael Coblenz has withdrawn from the race. In the Republican race, Roger Brill was available but Andy Barr was unavailable. Due to FCC rules, the sponsors are not able to host a Republican primary since only one candidate is able to attend. Citizens are encouraged to check the League’s online Voter Guide (www.Vote411.org) after May 1 for more information about the candidates.


The forums are co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters Education Fund, the Lexington Public Library and The Frankfort/Lexington Chapter of The Links, Incorporated.  


The forum will be held as follows:

Sunday, April 3, 2016

2:00-2:30 p.m.

Farish Theatre

Lexington Public Library

140 East Main Street


Candidates will have time for opening and closing remarks and will respond to questions submitted in writing by audience members and/or prepared by the sponsoring organizations. Questions may also be submitted prior to the forum by emailing lexingtonlwv@gmail.com.


The public is invited to attend to meet the candidates in person and submit questions in writing.  The forum will be videotaped and aired on the Library’s Channel 20 and will be available for viewing on the library website after the forum. Citizens should check websites of the League of Women Voters of Lexington, KY and the Lexington Public Library for a schedule and You Tube links.


“The League is proud to sponsor candidate forums to help educate the voters about what the candidates stand for,” said League President Tammy Fagley.  “We want to thank the candidates for agreeing to participate in our forum and we encourage the public to attend or view the forum before voting.”
