GILLETTE, Wyo. — The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming is inviting the public to tune into a forum for the Republican candidates for state superintendent of public instruction, set to start at 5:30 p.m.
The forum is hosted at Young AmeriTowne: WyoTowne, 910 Barbara St. in Casper, and is available as a livestream here.
The forum is presented by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming and Wyoming PBS. Forum facilitators include Craig Blumenshine and Steve Peck, respective former and current Wyoming PBS senior public affairs producers, a news release states.
“An invitation has been extended to all Republican candidates for the office of State Superintendent of Public Instruction. There is one Democratic candidate who has also filed for the office,” the release states. “It is anticipated that Young AmeriTowne: WyoTowne will host a future general election forum for candidates moving forward to that election.”
