The Houma-Terrebonne Chamber of Commerce will host an additional public forum for State Representative District 51. The forum will take place Tuesday, August 27 in the Fletcher Technical Community College Atrium on 1407 Highway 311 from 6-8 p.m.

Like the other four forums, it is open to the public and all media outlets. The forum will be live streamed on the Houma Chamber Facebook page. Due to time constraints, only the panelist will be able to ask candidates questions. The public may submit questions to nicol@ by August 12.

The Houma-Terrebonne Chamber of Commerce will maintain the absolute confidentiality and fairness to all candidates. All questions will be secured by the Chamber executive vice chair of the government activities committee. No member, board member or any other individual will have access or knowledge of the questions prior to the forums. 

The complete schedule for the August public forums are:

• Terrebonne Parish President: Monday, August 19

• State Senate District 20: Tuesday, August 20

• Terrebonne Parish Sheriff: Monday, August 26

• State Representative District 51: Tuesday, August 27
