No candidates 'invited'

Dear Gary,

A candidate for a local political position called me this past week asking me how she had missed the invite to present at our last Oroville Chamber meeting. I assured her that out of the six local candidates that presented, none of them had been “invited” by the chamber.

The chamber did not pick and choose which candidates to have present. The six were there because they had contacted the chamber sometime in the previous two months asking for an opportunity to address the chamber and we set the October meeting as the time any such candidate could choose to attend and share.
