Local government candidate forums planned

September 26, 2022

The League of Women Voters (LWV) Park Rapids Area welcomes the community back to our traditional in-person candidate forums. Candidates who filed for Park Rapids School Board, County Commissioner Dist. 3 and Park Rapids City Council have been invited to participate. Candidate forums will be held at 7 p.m. at Northwoods Bank Community Room, 1200 1st St. East. The community room is handicapped accessible. Forums will be Monday, Sept. 26 for Park Rapids City Council candidates, Tuesday, Sept. 27 for Park Rapids School Board candidates and Wednesday, Sept. 28 for Hubbard County Commissioner candidates for Dist. 3. The public may submit questions relevant to the office the candidate is seeking and which will be asked by a League-trained moderator. Voters attending the forums have two opportunities to submit questions: by email to lwvparkrapids@lwvmn.org by Saturday, Sept. 24 and/or in writing at the event. By LWV policy, the identity of the person asking the question is confidential. All forums are free and open to the public.
