Eastern Panhandle voters will have an opportunity to hear what candidates running for governor have to say about education, the economy and other issues.
A candidates' forum will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at Musselman High School. Media outlets report that most of the 14 candidates plan to participate. Martinsburg radio station WEPM will stream the forum live on the Internet. It's a co-sponsor of the event along with The Journal of Martinsburg, Berkeley Senior Services, Blue
Ridge Community and Technical College and WHAG-TV of Hagerstown, Maryland.
WEPM news director Hans Fogle will be the moderator. He says he hopes the forum will give voters an opportunity to make informed choices.
The primary is May 14.
