A forum for the two candidates for District 70 state representative is set for Thursday.
The event will be 6-8 p.m. in the lecture hall at Memorial Middle School.
The candidates are the incumbent, Democrat Richard Vigil, and Republican Mel Root. Travis Regensberg had filed as an independent candidate, but the secretary of state determined that he didn’t have enough petition signatures.
Vigil, who has served since 1999, ran against Root in 2008, prevailing with 70 percent of the vote.
