Council candidate forum set for Thursday night


Residents of Coulee Dam will have an opportunity to get to know at least some of their candidates for city council positions in the November 3rd election.

A forum will be held beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, in the community room at city hall.

Scott Hunter, publisher of The Star newspaper, will act as moderator of the event.

Six candidates running for the three open council positions have been invited to participate in the forum, but only three plan to attend.

Candidates will have an opportunity to provide information about themselves and later answer questions from the public and the evening’s moderator.

The candidate forum will go from 6-8 p.m. and light refreshments will be available.

The three not attending are Ben Alling, who will be on his annual hunting trip; Ken Miles, who will be traveling out of state; and Bonnie Femling.

Candidates David Schmidt, running against Femling; Herb Sherburne, running against Alling; and Keith St. Jeor, have not declined.

The races are tied to a number of challenges the town faces, such as the new wastewater treatment plant, consolidation of services with other towns or cities, water issues, and more.

The public is invited to meet the candidates and to ask questions.
