RBC I Candidate forums have been scheduled in the next two weeks for Rangely and Meeker, giving county voters a change to better decide who will be the best candidate for Rio Blanco County commissioners.
The four candidates up for election are Meeker incumbent Jeff Eskelson, who is challenged by former Rio Blanco Sheriff Si Woodruff in District 3 and Rangely incumbent Jon Hill, challenged by Rangely businessman Jeff Rector in District 2.
While the two races represent district elections, all county voters will vote in both districts. In Rangely, the candidate forum will be held Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Rangely Junior/Senior High School auditorium. In Meeker, the candidate forum will be held Monday, May 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the 4-H Building.
The voting public is invited and encouraged to attend. The forums are sponsored by the Rio Blanco Republican Party. For more information or to submit questions for the forums, contact Logan Hill at 970-629-8807.
