With local elections just around the corner, there’s no better time to inform yourself on the candidates than at a community forum next week.
The Sandpoint Reader and Sandpoint Online are hosting a Sandpoint City Council candidates forum set for 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30, at Sandpoint Community Hall. In keeping with previous Reader and Sandpoint Online forums, the evening will be moderated by a panel, which will deliver questions submitted by the audience to each candidate.
For further research on council candidates, check out the Reader’s candidate questionnaire online at sandpointreader.com/sandpoint-city-council-candidates-questionnaire. Candidates have also participated in interviews with the KRFY Morning Show, which can be found online at https://www.krfy.org/podcast.
Elections take place Tuesday, Nov. 7, from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Candidates Joel Aispuro, Jeff Bohnhof, John Darling, Mose Dunkel, Robert Jediny and Shannon Williamson compete for three open council seats currently held by Shannon Williamson, Bob Camp and Stephen Snedden.
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
