2020 General Election Candidates Conference - Republican Candidates

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Online - Virtual Event

As in years past, we are hosting a series of panel discussions ahead of November 3rd to provide the region’s business community with an opportunity to engage candidates running for state and federal offices in dialogue on key issues and to discuss their campaign platforms.

These discussions will be held virtually and will be moderated by the University of Akron’s Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics. There will be two separate events, one for Republicans and one for Democrats, where participants will hear directly from each candidate and have an opportunity to engage them in Q&A. We will take questions through the Chat function of Zoom and welcome all registrants to submit questions ahead of each session.

Republican Panelists as of 9/22/20 Include:
Congressman Anthony Gonzalez (i)
Candidate, 16th Congressional District of Ohio

Laverne Gore
Candidate, 11th Congressional District of Ohio

(Former) State Representative Christina Hagan
