Candidate Forum: Monday, May 16th at 6:30 

Edmond Community Center 28E Main

Please come and bring a friend to EDW’s General Assembly meeting, a Candidate Forum for Democratic Candidates for Governor and Democratic Candidates for US Senate Lankford’s seat.

This Monday May 16th, EDW will host the first of two Candidate Forums for our members to get to know the Democratic candidates running for office where there will be a primary on June 28th. We have invited Democratic gubernatorial candidates Connie Johnson and Joy Hofmeister and Democratic US Senate Lankford seat candidates: Jason Bollinger, Madison Horn, Jo Glenn, Dennis Baker, Brandon Wade and Arya Azma. Joy Hofmeister will come in June because of a conflict Monday and at the time of this writing, we have not heard from Arya Azma and his plans to attend. Kendra Horn, running for US Senate Inhofe’s seat will be present and briefly speak but since she has no democratic opponent for the June 28th primary therefore will not be a part of the forum. EDW’s Chair of Recruit, Support, Elect Committee, Jo Beth Moad will be the Forum Moderator with questions about Healthcare, Government Corruption, Women’s Rights, and Building a Strong Economy for our gubernatorial candidates and Voting Rights, Women’s Healthcare, Common Sense Gun Reform, and Climate Change/Clean Energy for the Senate candidates.

Several political races only have 1 Democratic candidate running before the primary that our members can vote for in those districts, so we have invited them to attend on either or both dates to visit with our members or bring literature, donor envelopes or volunteer signups. Once the races have 1 Democratic candidate, then that candidate can ask EDW for an endorsement and go through the endorsement process that is offered by our Recruit, Support, Elect Committee if they would like EDW’s endorsement.

The following candidates have been invited to these meetings to meet our members or for a table contact :
