Public invited to candidate forum for House Seats 43, 47

Mustang Public Schools would like to invite the public to two education forums featuring candidates for House Seat 43 and House Seat 47, previously held by John Paul Jordan and Leslie Osborn, respectively. The forum will be strictly education based.
