District 109 Candidate Forum Coming to Campus of FCC

A candidate forum for Illinois District 109 will be held on the campus of Frontier Community College in Fairfield on Monday, September 24.  The informational event, which is co-sponsored by the Wayne County Farm Bureau and FCC’s Student Senate club, will feature Republican candidate Darren Bailey and Democrat candidate Cynthia Givens, who are both running to fill the seat of outgoing State Representative David Reis.

The candidate forum will be held in FCC’s Workforce Development Center and will begin at 7:00 p.m., with the event concluding around 8:30 p.m.  The public is encouraged to attend the forum to meet both candidates and learn more about their positions and legislative priorities for the State of Illinois.  No live questions will be taken at the event.  Instead, the public is welcome to submit all questions in advance to FCC’s Student Senate.  Both Bailey and Givens will receive the questions ahead of the forum and provide their detailed responses the evening of the event.

To submit questions for the District 109 Candidate Forum, please e-mail FCC’s Student Senate club at  All questions must be submitted by Saturday, September 1.
