Letter: Set of candidate forums | Letters

I invite you to join the League of Women Voters at the 2022 Election Cycle Candidate Forums to be held in Red Wing Central Park and recorded video for public access television in September.

This is a unique opportunity to hear for yourself how each candidate presents their point of view and unfolds in a public place. Please bring your own chair. The forums are scheduled as follows:

  • Goodhue County Lawyer and Sheriff on Tuesday, September 13 at 5 p.m.

  • Minnesota Senate District 20 and Minnesota House District 20A on Tuesday, September 13 at 6 p.m.

  • Red Wing School Board on Thursday, September 15 at 5 p.m.

  • Red Wing City Council Thursday, September 22 at 5:30 p.m.

The forums will have a moderator who will ask pre-selected questions and each contestant will have the opportunity to answer each question. The link to submit questions for the forums is sites.google.com/lwvmn.org/lwvrwevents/2022-election-information/questions-for-candidates?authuser=0.

Questions are accepted on this form up to 48 hours before the start of each candidate event. Candidates will not be permitted to display campaign signs, slogans or T-shirts on stage and have been asked to present their views cordially.

According to the rules of the municipal park, lawn flag poles are not allowed. We are fortunate to be able to present these opportunities to you to learn from your future elected officials.
