The oldest and most credible live political debate in Douglas County is almost here. Hosted by the BCDC since 2002 and in more recent years hosted with our good friends and partners, the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce and Record Courier.

Set for May 16, 2018 at the Douglas County Community Center. Doors open at 5pm.

The non-debated race local candidates will be there with tables for you to get to know them as well if they so chose to attend.
