If our (Wo)Man on the Street interviews are any indication, many Sandpoint candidates could probably use a primer on mayoral candidates. If so, you’re in luck. The Sandpoint Reader and Sandpoint Online are teaming up to host a candidate forum Wednesday, Oct. 28, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Sandpoint Community Hall.

The evening will provide an ideal opportunity to learn the positions of mayoral candidates Mose Dunkel and Shelby Rognstad. Although they’re running unopposed, incumbent council members Bill Aitken, Thomas Eddy and Deb Fragoso will also be present to address the issues and their qualifications. Finally, Sandpoint Mayor Carrie Logan and Parks and Recreation Director Kim Woodruff will give a presentation on the proposed 1 percent sales tax to rebuild the Barlow Stadium grandstands at Memorial Field.

Come prepared, because the candidates will have to answer questions from the audience. To email a question, go to Sandpoint Online’s Election Central, direct link, and click the “submit a question” link.

While we have you ...

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.
