Pioneer Public Television, in cooperation with the Willmar area League of Women Voters, will air a “Meet the Candidates” forum on Thursday evening, September 9, featuring Minnesota State Senate candidates from District 11.
District 11 DFL candidate Jim Thoreen of Morris and Republican candidate (incumbent) Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria, are scheduled to appear live beginning at 8 p.m.
The forums are being aired on Thursday evenings to provide constituents an opportunity to hear candidates in an unbiased setting.
Moderated by Amy Doll-Wohlers, viewers are invited to phone their questions to Pioneer at 1-800-726-3178 during each program or e-mail at email@example.com.
General Manager Les Heen said, “The vast regions of our rural districts make it difficult for voters to see their candidates side by side. The Meet the Candidate setting is a perfect opportunity for Pioneer to help educate everyone before the elections in November.”
The candidate forum series is made possible with financial support from the League of Rural Voters.
