  • The Chamber and DCP to host Fargo Candidate Forums
    Moorhead, Minn. (February 16, 2022) – The Chamber, in partnership with the Downtown Community Partnership (DCP), will be hosting a 2022 Fargo Mayoral Candidate Forum on Monday, April 25, and a 2022 Fargo City Commission Candidate Forum on Wednesday, May 4. These forums will serve as an opportunity for community members to hear directly from the 2022 mayoral and city commission candidates.
    “As voters prepare for the June 2022 Fargo election, it is important to keep our community informed and active in the election process,” remarked Chamber VP of Public Policy Katherine Grindberg. “These forums, in conjunction with several other events and resources, are part of The Chamber’s election efforts. The Chamber doesn’t endorse candidates, rather provides educational opportunities such as this for the community to be informed voters.”
    “Local elections truly have the power to shape our community in the years to come. The Downtown Community Partnership is proud of our partnership with The Chamber to provide an opportunity for voters to learn about candidates, their positions, and the possibilities they see for downtown, and our city as a whole,” said DCP Executive Director Cindy Graffeo.
    All candidates will be invited to participate in the forums for the opportunity to discuss their views on topics imperative to the business community such as permanent flood protection, economic development, housing, city growth and how they will lead Fargo and ensure a prosperous future. These forums will be hosted at Fargo City Hall from 4 to 5:30 p.m. and will be open to the public at no cost. Visit The Chamber’s website for more information and to register.
