The Peninsula Clarion and KDLL 91.9 FM, in partnership with the Central Kenai Peninsula League of Women Voters, will hold the second of nine in-person candidate forums on Tuesday, Sept. 6 from 6-7 p.m. at the Joyce K. Carver Soldotna Public Library.
The forum will spotlight candidates running for seats on the Soldotna City Council, including incumbents Lisa Parker and Dave Carey, as well as candidates Erick Hugarte and Garrett Dominick.
Slated for Mondays from 6-7 p.m. through Oct. 31 at the Soldotna library, the series will include Kenai and Soldotna city councils, borough assembly, board of education and Kenai Peninsula State House and Senate seats. Candidates running for the assembly’s Nikiski seat will have their own forum on Sept. 26. The forum for other assembly candidates will be on Sept. 12.
For those unable to attend in person, forums will also be streamed live on KDLL 91.9 FM, at kdll.org and on The Peninsula Clarion’s Facebook page.
Forums will be moderated by Sabine Poux, news director at KDLL, and by Ashlyn O’Hara, government and education reporter at The Peninsula Clarion.
Questions asked during candidate forums will come from The Peninsula Clarion and KDLL, as well as from members of the public who submit questions in advance. Questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
