RATHDRUM — The Chamber of Commerce is hosting a City Council candidate meet and greet event Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Lakeland High School Commons.

Providing a chance to chat with candidates face-to-face, they will also respond to prepared questions.

Incumbent Darrell Rickard will join six other candidates running for seats one and three.

Chamber executive director Ashley Moore said surveys were sent several months ago inquiring about resident concerns within the community.

Based on citizen responses, questions focus on transportation and growth issues and how candidates view the role of a City Council member.

Candidates will have five minutes to respond with ample time set aside for voters to visit individually with candidates.

“We really want the community to come out and interact and get to know them,” said Moore. “We want the voters to be educated.”
