The 2015 Desert Hot Springs Candidates Forum

chamber_logoThe Desert Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce has a history of involvement in local political activities that predates the incorporation of the City. In fact, it was through active engagement of the Chamber that both the Water District and the City were established! As a 501(c)(6) organization, the Chamber may participate in political events and may be involved in advocacy.

The date and format of the 2015 Desert Hot Springs Candidates Forum has been determined by numerous factors, such as:

  1. Ensuring that candidates would have an opportunity to address the community in a forum setting prior to absentee ballots being returned.
  2. No candidate was consulted or shown favoritism in development of the event.
  3. Location/venue availability to facilitate the 2015 Desert Hot Springs Candidate Forum.

The Chamber Board is hopeful that this event will be informative to the community as well as provide an opportunity for the candidates to explain their positions on numerous topics of importance. The Chamber is interested in facilitating this event to help the community identify the most desirable candidates to support in leading the community into a bright and prosperous future.

The forum is free and open to the public!
