LWV hosts county candidate forum

League of Women Voters ABC will present a forum for candidates for the Anoka County Board Tuesday, Sept. 25, 6:30 p.m., at the Anoka County Government Center.

There will be elections in all but one of the seven county commissioner districts as a result of this year’s redistricting for population shifts that followed the 2010 U.S. Census.

Only the District 4 seat, which comprises, Columbia Heights, Hilltop, most of Fridley and the portion of Spring Lake Park east of Highway 65, is not on the ballot this year.

All candidates have been invited to take part in the forum.

In keeping with LWV policy, both candidates for a county commissioner seat must be present to ensure that a side-by-side comparison is available for responses to questions from voters, according to Geri Nelson, LWV ABC voter service co-chairperson.

“League of Women Voters ABC has been active in the area for over 70 years,” Nelson said.

“This forum continues a strong tradition of helping voters obtain information about candidates’ stands on issues.”

Voters can locate candidate information for local, state and federal offices as well as identify their polling place for the Tuesday, Nov. 6 general election at the League of Minnesota Voters website at http://www.vote411.org/.
