The Elk River Area Citizens League will sponsor two forums at the Elk River City Hall that should heat things up in local school and legislative races.
The Sept. 15 forum will focus on the Elk River Area School Board candidates and the Elk River City Council races from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The candidates will answer questions from the league and the public.
Candidates for School Board include incumbents Sue Farber, Janelle Henry and Holly Thompson as well as Jane Frazier, Dan Hunt and Tom McAuley.
Elk River City Council candidates include Barb Burandt and Michael McDonough in Ward 3. Matt Westgaard is running unopposed in Ward 2.
The Oct. 6 forum from 8:30 a.m. to noon will feature races for the Minnesota House and Senate, U.S. House 6th District and the Sherburne County Commission.
All sessions will be in a question-and-answer format. For further information contact Pete Kimball, 763-441-1541.
