Six of the seven 3rd Congressional District candidates will participate in a candidate forum on health care July 9.
Confirmed participants are Republicans Ron Bhalla, U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, Scottie Mayfield and Weston Wamp; and Democrats Mary Headrick and Bill Taylor, according to a news release.
Matthew Deniston, an independent running for the seat, was not listed on the news release.
The forum is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. at the Probasco Auditorium at Erlanger hospital.
Sponsored by the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society, the forum "offers the health care community the chance to hear congressional candidates address issues specific to health care in a forum setting," according to the release.
The event will mark the first time dairy executive Mayfield has agreed to participate in a candidate forum event.
Chattanooga Times Free Press Metro Editor Chris Vass and Business Editor Dave Flessner will serve as co-moderators.
