Forward Montana offers free beer at unconventional candidate forum

Posted: Updated:

Forward Montana will host an unconventional legislative candidate forum with free beer on Wednesday, October 10. 

Attendees will hear from candidates in Senate districts 50 and 48 and House districts 95, 96 and 99. Organizers say it’s a chance for the Missoula community to meet with their legislators and ask questions in a relaxed environment. 

Forward Montana started hosting candidate forums in 2010, and past forums have included unconventional activities like an eating contest and a talent show.

orward Montana Missoula field manager Erin Miller compares the upcoming forum to the Rocky Horror Picture Show because it’s all about audience participation. 

“A lot of young voters are new voters, too,” Miller said. “The process can be kind of scary and a little intimidating, so we try to make it super informational, but also really fun.”

The candidate forum is scheduled for Wednesday, October 10 at the Roxy Theater in Missoula. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the first 50 people to show up will get a free beer.
