The forum is expected to feature seven candidates. Republican Bobbie Daniel faces Democrat Charles Pink for election to the Mesa County Commission in District 2. Republican Dean Havlik faces Democrat Meaghan Johnson in the race for Mesa County coroner. Three candidates will vie for election as Mesa County clerk and recorder: Libertarian Robert Ballard, Republican Bobbie Gross and Democrat Jeffery Waldon.

Justin Gollob, a professor of political science at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, will moderate the forum. He will pose questions to the candidates designed to offer voters information about their qualifications and positions.
