The League of Women Voters will co-host a Zoom forum with Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert and Democratic challenger Adam Frisch on Wednesday, Oct. 12 from 6-7 p.m.
This forum is free and open to the public and will allow voters to ask questions about the candidates for the 3rd Congressional District ahead of the general election in November.
The forum will be accessible through a Zoom link or Facebook Livestream. Links will be posted to the League’s website and Facebook pages.
This forum is sponsored by seven different Colorado League of Women’s Voters. Co-hosts include chapters from Montezuma and La Plata counties. Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District stretches stretches from Moffat County across the San Luis Valley to Pueblo, Otero and Las Animas counties.
The League of Women Voters is a 102-year-old organization with a mission to “Empower voters. Defend Democracy.” The group is nonpartisan – they neither oppose nor support candidates or political parties.
“Our goal is to provide information on candidates and ballot issues so that voters can make informed choices when casting their vote,” the group said.
Voters will have an hour to ask their questions.
Boebert serves the state of Colorado in Congress as a representative in the 3rd Congressional District. She is from Silt, and she and her husband own Shooters Grill in Rifle.
Boebert worked as a natural gas product technician, GIS technician and a pipeline integrity coordinator before starting Shooters Grill and becoming a congresswoman.
She is married to a natural gas drilling foreman and is a mother to four boys ages 9-17.
Frisch is a newcomer dedicated to unseating Boebert. He is a former Aspen City Council member and owns a small business. He was born in North Dakota and lived on a Native American reservation with his father in Montana until he turned five.
He was an avid skier and raced competitively before graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1990. He worked in finance in New York City before making the move to Aspen in 2003.
Frisch won the Colorado primary in June over Sol Sandoval by a few hundred votes.
He is married and has one son.
No reservation is needed to attend the forum.
