The North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce will host Dallas mayoral candidates Ed Oakley and Tom Leppert at a breakfast meeting at Cityplace Conference Center on June 8 at 7:30 a.m.
Sherry Briggs, president of the chamber, said the chamber members are excited to be hosting the candidates’ forum.
“As a chamber of commerce, we are deeply concerned with the economic well being of North Texas, but we are equally attuned to issues that affect the overall GLBT community,” Briggs said.
Tony Vedda, the chamber’s executive director, said the forum is expected to draw a large audience.
“We realize that a large percentage of the GLBT community is very interested in the election,” Vedda said.
