The second of three candidate forums is scheduled to take place this Saturday morning at the Southern Door Auditorium. Forum organizer League of Women Voters Door County kicked off the series last Thursday with the Door County Sheriff’s race between Republican Chief Deputy Pat McCarty and Democrat Jail Lieutenant Tammy Sternard. Saturday will feature the race for the First Senate District between Senator Caleb Frostman and Rep. Andre Jacque. League member Barb Graul says the forums serve an important purpose as voters get closer to the general election on November 6th.
The candidate forum series will conclude next Thursday at the Sturgeon Bay Common Council Chambers when Republican Rep. Joel Kitchens meets independent candidate Roberta Thelen. Saturday’s forum will begin at 9:30 a.m. while Thursday’s session starts at 6:30 p.m.
