(Neb)-KCSR/KBPY/Chadron Record Candidates Forum Is Wednesday
CHADRON - Voters have a chance to learn more about the candidates in three local races this Wednesday night at 6:30 with the Chadron Record/KCSR-KBPY Primary Election Forum at the Chadron State College Student Center Scottsbluff Room.
There are only 3 contested races in the May 15th primary - Crawford City Council South Ward, Dawes County Commissioner District 2, and County Treasurer - and all 3 will be covered in the forum. The forum will NOT be streamed on public access this year, so you must attend in person
Up first at 6:30 will be the Crawford city council race. Incumbent Roy Norgard and challenger Susan Leeling have confirmed that they will participate. It's unclear if Ronnie Thompson will..
That's followed at 7:15 by the County Treasurer's race, which has no incumbent. Two of those 3 candidates have also committed to the forum - Rhonda Schleuning and Jennifer Dean. The third, Sam Wellnitz, is traveling out of state and will submit a statement to be read by the moderators
The final race of the evening at 8:00 is County Commissioner District 2 and all 3 candidates have confirmed they'll take part - Kevin Lotton, incumbent Vic Rivera, and former commissioner Stacy Swinney
Each of the sessions will follow the same format. Each candidate can present a 60-second opening statement and a 90-second closing statement, with the rest of the time spent answering questions from the moderators from the radio stations and the newspaper.
Members of the audience can submit written questions to the moderators at the forum, and questions can be submitted in advance by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Record at 432-5511 or KCSR/KBPY at 432-5545.
