ENID, Okla. — All seven candidates for three Enid City Commission seats have been invited to a forum Monday to discuss their views before the Feb. 12 election.

Candidates for the Ward 3 seat are attorney Ben Ezzell and former city of Enid employee Eldon Stephens. Ezzell works as a bankruptcy attorney in Enid.
