Hundreds turn out for Gubernatorial candidate debate

Posted: Wednesday, August 28, 2002

Some three hundred people turned out for last weeks Kenai Chamber of Commerce gubernatorial debate.

Anticipating the local interest in meeting Alaska's next Governor, Kenai Chamber executive director Audrey Walaszek, arranged to move the regular Wednesday luncheon from the Paradisos restaurant in Kenai, to the Diamond Rose hall at the Kenai Bowling Alley, "The Diamond Rose generously offered their space to the Chamber and the folks at Paradisos moved their buffet for no additional charge, so that more folks could have the opportunity to meet Alaska's next governor, whoever that may be," said Walaszek.

The Chamber will return to their regular meeting location this week and will continue to host "Meet the Candidate" debates through the election season. However, on September 11th, the Chamber is canceling their regular luncheon meeting to join the National Commemoration of September 11th being sponsored by The American Legion Post #20 and held at the Kenai Central High School Auditorium at 12:00pm.

"We're skipping the 11th meeting because we'd like to invite everyone to join the memorial ceremony that is going to be held at KCHS so that we can all gather together to remember the innocent victims of the September 11th attack," said Walaszek.
