Sheriff candidate forum slated for July 26
T.B. Scott Free Library and the Merrill Foto News/Merrill Courier newspapers will be co-hosting a Lincoln County Sheriff candidate forum on Thursday, July 26 from 6-8 p.m. at the Lincoln County Service Center-Room 257. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
The Lincoln County Sheriff candidates who will face off in the Aug. 14 partisan primary, Pete Borchardt and Ken Schneider, have both been invited to attend. Both candidates are running as Republicans in the primary election. The forum will provide the public with an opportunity to see, hear and question the candidates. The moderator for the evening will be the Honorable Glenn Hartley, former Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge.
Citizens are encouraged to attend and participate in this event. Beginning at 6 p.m., those who attend can submit their questions for the candidates by filling out a card and placing it into a box. Those who attend may also submit questions on behalf of someone who cannot attend. Candidates will also provide opening and closing statements as part of the Forum.
The fall election will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 14, with the polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The T.B. Scott Free Library serves as a place to connect people to their community and promote civic engagement. For more information about the library, visit their website at http://www.tbscottlibrary.org/.
