The Garden City Area Chamber of Commerce plans to host a Kansas Democratic gubernatorial candidate forum from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. July 24.

Democratic candidates who have confirmed their attendance are Carl Brewer, Laura Kelly and Josh Svaty.

The forum will take place in the auditorium at Garden City High School, 2720 Buffalo Way, and will begin with a two-minute opening statement from each candidate, followed by a question-and-answer session. Each candidate also will provide a two-minute statement to close out the forum. 

A reception will follow the forum, where candidates will have the opportunity to mingle with guests and answer additional questions.

This Chamber previously announced plans to host a Republican gubernatorial candidate forum on July 11. Republican candidates who have confirmed their plans to attend are Jim Barnett, Kris Kobach, Lt. Gov. Tracey Mann representing Gov. Jeff Colyer's campaign, and Ken Selzer.

Both forums are open to the public.

Individuals interested in submitting a question for the forum may do so by emailing Chamber President Myca Bunch at All questions will be pre-screened by the Chamber to prevent duplication and to ensure appropriateness.
