Southern Illinois residents will have a chance to get acquainted with the Democratic gubernatorial candidates at a forum at Southern Illinois University Carbondale this week.
Daniel Biss, Bob Daiber, Tio Hardiman, Chris Kennedy, Robert Marshall and J.B. Pritzker — all running for Illinois governor in the March primary — are expected to participate in the discussion Tuesday at the SIU Student Center Auditorium.
The event, which starts at 6:30 p.m., is co-sponsored by Southern Illinois Local Media Group and the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce. It is focused on business-related issues facing the region.
Although admission is free, those planning to attend were asked to register in advance and registration is now closed.
