Candidates for the 18th and 17th district house races and the 9th district senate race will appear at a moderated forum in Evanston Thursday.
18th District incumbent Rep. Robyn Gabel (D-Evanston), challenger Eric Lieberman (R-Evanston), 17th district house candidate Laura Fine (D-Glenview), 17th district house candidate Kyle Frank (R-Skokie) and 9th district senate candidate Glenn Farkas (R-Glenview) are scheduled to appear at the forum hosted by the Central Street Neighbors Association. State Rep. Daniel Biss (D-Evanston), who is also running for the 9th district senate seat, had a previously scheduled appearance that evening.
"While the national presidential race is naturally the focus of most interest this election year, critical fiscal and social issues face Illinois," explains a post on the Central Street Neighbors Association website. "The continued involvement of the community in state and local government remains important."
The forum runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at Haven Middle School, 2417 Prairie Ave. in Evanston. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
