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.
The schedule for October 7 includes:
8 p.m. House District 11A: (I) Dave Holman, (R) Torrey Westrom, (DFL) Bennett Smith.
