Garland ISD Board of Trustees, City Council candidates to speak at Chamber luncheon

Candidates to address important election issues at Garland Chamber forum

Garland candidates in contested district races have added a stop to their campaign trails at the Garland Chamber of Commerce’s Monthly Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, April 30.

The Luncheon, held at The Atrium at the Granville Arts Center, 300 N. Fifth Street in Garland, will serve as a forum for candidates running for positions on the G.I.S.D. Board of Trustees and the Garland City Council in the general election being held on May 12, 2012.

Each candidate on the ballot is invited to attend and will be recognized; however, only candidates in contested races will have the opportunity to address attendees.

The local business community and citizens of Garland are invited to attend the Luncheon at $30 per Chamber member or $40 per non-member. Registrations made prior to April 26 will receive a $5 discount. Attendees are welcome to bring questions for the candidates as there will be a ten-minute question and answer portion following the candidates’ addresses to the group.
