Paul Brown where they stand on the critical issues of education today.
Following the formal session, the audience will have the opportunity to engage the candidates in informal, individual discussion. This is a non-partisan event open to all at no charge. It is offered as a public service, not as a fund-raising event.
The Foundation believes that whoever serves as CO 59th District State Representative in the next term will be challenged to resolve many major issues in education, issues that affect our students, our schools and ultimately, our communities. At this forum, voters will learn how our the candidates stand on vital educational issues such as school funding, state educational mandates, teacher evaluations, changing educational standards, student testing and more.
