ALEXANDRIA — The Alexandria Rotary Club and the Noontime Kiwanis have organized a District 206 School Board Election Candidate Informational Forum on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

The forum will begin at 6 p.m. in Auditorium 743 at Alexandria Technical and Community College. This is a neutral location that is accessible to the candidates, public and press.

It will include at least six candidates for the upcoming District 206 School Board election and will be open to the community.

The forum is planned to last one hour. Using a candidate rotation system, each candidate will be given two minutes to introduce themselves and then answer six questions.

The candidates are Alan Zeithamer for position 2 (his opponent, Vern Engstrom, has not indicated if he will attend), Lynne Lommen and Shawn Reilly for position 3, Sandy Susag and Laura Knudsen for position 4, and Maureen Eigen, who is running unopposed for position 5.

The forum questions were developed by the Alexandria Echo Press, based on suggestions from the National School Board Association. The moderator will be Tyler Golberg from the Rotary Club.

The forum will not entertain questions from the audience or the candidates themselves.

In the event of overflow of attendees, the college will accommodate the informational forum by live-streaming it to overflow classrooms adjacent to Auditorium 743. The event will not be live-streamed to any resources outside of the college.

The Echo Press will be present at the event.

Directional signs to the auditorium will be posted in the building.
