The second of two candidate forums sponsored by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and the Charles City Chamber of Commerce tonight features the six candidates vying for three seats on the Charles City School Board.
Voters will hear from current Board President Josh Mack, the lone incumbent seeking re-election, along with Kathryn Fox, Claire Jung, Lori Otto, David Schrodt and Staci Taylor, who are running for their first seat on the board. The forum will be conducted at the NIACC Center from 7 to 9 p.m. without a public audience due to COVID safety concerns, but the forums can be viewed on Facebook Live through the Chamber’s Facebook page at Chuck Town: Charles City, Iowa. Rebroadcasts will also be available on the Public Access Network website at www.charlescitypan.com.
Voters can submit questions for the candidates by emailing CharlesCityAAUW@gmail.com up until 7:30 p.m. tonight.
