Voters will get the opportunity to meet candidates for Harker Heights City Council and Killeen Independent School District Board of Trustees during the Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce Governmental Affairs luncheon Thursday.
The forum will be an informative and educational event for the community, said Gina Pence, chamber president.
“This gives the community an opportunity to get to know their candidates better and ask them questions.”
The luncheon is from 11:30 to 1 p.m. Thursday at St. Paul Chong Hasang Parish Hall Activities Center, 1000 East Farm-to-Market 2410, Harker Heights. Reservations will be taken through Tuesday.
