With the election on November 4 nearing, voters are invited to a forum featuring candidates for the local Northfield elections. On Thursday, October 30, starting at 7:00, all the candidates who will be on the ballot for seats on the Northfield City Council will appear. The order of races is:
7 :05 - candidates for Ward 3: Don McGee and Erica Zweifel
7:25 - candidates for Council Member at Large: Dana Graham and Kris Vohs
7:45 - candidates for Ward 2: Betsy Buckheit and Jerold Friedman
8:05 - candidates for Council Member at Large: Joe Gasior, Rhonda Pownell, Victor Summa, and C. Lynn Vincent
8:35 - candidates for Mayor: Paul Hager and Mary Rossing
The forum will be held in the Council Chamber of Northfield City Hall, 801 Washington Street. While the forum is open to all, especially those who would like to ask the candidates questions, seating is limited and attendees are urged to come early. The forum will also be available for viewing on NTV (schedule to be announced) and on-line at LWVNorthfieldmn.org.
This is the final in a series of candidate forums presented by the Northfield News and the League of Women Voters of Northfield and Cannon Falls. This collaboration between the News and the League was done to provide voters with another means to assist in their selection of candidates in the voting booth. The News has also run a series of profiles of candidates which can be viewed at Northfieldnews.com
