Elect 2012: Submit your questions for candidate forums

What would you like to ask the candidates for the Rowan County Board of Commissioners?
How about the state House and Congress?
The Salisbury Post is asking readers to suggest questions for two upcoming candidate forums.
The Post is working in partnership with the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce and Catawba College to hold the forums next week. Here’s the schedule:
Wednesday, April 11
Legislative races
• 6 to 6:50 p.m., Republicans vying for the District 76 seat in the N.C. House — Carl Ford and Eric Troyer — will answer questions. (There is no Democratic primary for this seat.)
• 7 to 8:30 p.m., all seven candidates for North Carolina’s 8th District seat in the U.S. House have been invited to participate. They are Democrats Larry Kissell and Marcus Williams and Republicans Richard Hudson, Scott Keadle, Vernon Robinson, Fred Steen and John Whitley.
Thursday, April 12
County commission
• 6-7 p.m., the six Democrats in the race are featured. They are Leda Belk, Carrol Crawford, Thomas Eller, Corey Hill, Travis Summitt and Ralph Walton.
• 7:15-8:30 p.m. will feature the nine Republicans — Gus Andrews, Mac Butner, Mike Caskey, Carl Dangerfield, Bill Feather, Laura Hutchison, Joel Johnson, Gene Miller and Craig Pierce.
Both forums will be held in Tom Smith Auditorium on the Catawba campus.
Dr. Michael Bitzer, professor of political science and history at Catawba College, will moderate the forums. Bitzer selects the final questions, but he relies on Salisbury Post readers to share their suggestions.
