Each local election year, the O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce hosts candidates’ forums.  The purpose of our forums is to provide the community with a chance to get to know the local candidates and provide the information they need to make an informed vote.  Forums are usually held for mayoral, aldermanic, trustee, and school board contested races.

For questions or for more information, please contact Debbie Arell-Martinez, Executive Director | 632-3377 or director@ofallonchamber.com

Our next Political Forums will be held in March of 2019:

Meet the candidates!
Read the candidate bios and make an informed decision.

The O’Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce, O’Fallon Weekly, and O’Fallon Progress will co-host a series of Candidate Forums in support of the upcoming April elections. These forums provide our residents with a chance to get to know the candidates and provide them information they may need to make an informed vote. Forums are held for contested races only.

A Forum Moderator will introduce all candidates, ask questions, manage time, and maintain proper decorum.

The public is invited to attend all Forums; seating will be limited. 

In order to ensure maximum publicity and public awareness, all O’Fallon Forums will be re-aired on Charter Cable Channel 993 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 through April 2.
