County commission candidates sound off

The four candidates vying for the District 2 and District 3 seats on the Sedgwick County Board of Commissioners will speak at a forum next month at Newman University.

The forum, sponsored by the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, will give voters a chance to hear from District 2 incumbent Tim Norton, a Democrat, and his Republican challenger, Craig Gabel, as well as District 3 hopefuls Republican Karl Peterjohn and Democrat Marcey Gregory.  The commission races are ramping up to be interesting with a lot of focus on giving residents some relief on property taxes.  The Eagle recently reported that Gabel is delinquent on some of his own taxes.

The forum will start at 7 p.m. Oct. 14 at Newman Universeity’s De Mattias Performance Hall and is free and open the public.
