The 2012 candidates forum set for Oct. 25 has gained a little weight.
The forum — sponsored by the Clark County Community Education Program, the Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce and The Winchester Sun — has a few extra additions for those attending at 6:30 p.m. at the Clark County Cooperative Extension Service Office.
The event will kick off with a welcome, followed by the U.S House of Representatives District 6 race at 6:40 p.m. Challenger Andy Barr has agreed to attend while incumbent Ben Chandler will likely send a representative.
The 72nd District State Representative race between incumbent Donna Mayfield and challenger JoEllen Reed will follow at 7 p.m. Mayfield is serving her first term as state representative after defeating Don Pasley in the 2010 election. Reed has served as both a Winchester city commissioner and a Clark County Fiscal Court commissioner.
