Grand Lake Candidate Forum scheduled for Tuesday

The Grand Lake Candidate Forum will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18, at the Grand Lake Fire Station.

It is being sponsored by the Grand Lake Rotary Club, Grand Lake Women’s Club and Sky-Hi Daily News.

Candidates will be introduced and given two minutes to introduce themselves and why they are a candidate for mayor or trustee. There are three candidates for mayor ” Judy Burke, Glenn Harrington and Russ Martin. Four people have filed for trustee along with one write-in candidate ” Gary Gates, Joanne Jewell, Elmer Lanzi, Kathleen Lewis and Benton Johnson. There are three trustee positions open.

Three questions have been prepared and presented in advance for each candidate to respond to in a two minute time limitation. The person starting each response will be rotated. People attending the forum will have the opportunity to submit questions, and a committee will review them to select two additional questions for the candidates response.

If you have questions you want addressed but are unable to attend the forum, you may call Kathy Means at 627-8978.
