Thirty-one candidates vying for seats in the U.S. Congress, Senate and Clark County School District, in addition to local judiciary benches met with residents on Saturday during the Residents' Forum’s annual candidate mixer. According to Residents’ Forum Program Director Sue Papilion, “Senate candidate Tom Heck came up to me during the event to thank Sun City for putting on the program. He told me that after meeting with many Sun City residents this was the best stop on his campaign so far – where he had met the most people and received the most feedback.”
Current Residents’ Forum President Glenda Rogers says that the Forum has been sponsoring the candidates event for the last 10 years that she can remember.
It’s our only fundraiser with a fee for the candidates to participate,” Glenda said. “(In turn) every cent that is earned is returned to the Residents’ Forum throughout the year. The funds are used to subsidize the Forum’s monthly entertainment, educational seminars, music, parties and food. The Residents’ Forum does not charge a fee to attend the monthly get-togethers that are scheduled on the second Wednesday night of the month. All programs are presented for the benefit of the residents of Sun City.”
To see what’s coming up each month, residents should be sure to check the Link and the sandwich boards that are posted throughout the community. Next month, early voting heads into Sun City at Mountain Shadows and Desert Vista, June 4-5 and June 6-7, respectively.
