The Peninsula Clarion and KDLL 91.9 FM, in partnership with the Central Kenai Peninsula League of Women Voters, will hold the third of nine in-person candidate forums on Monday, Sept. 12 from 6-7 p.m. at the Soldotna Public Library.
Monday’s forum will spotlight candidates running for seats on the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly. Vying for the assembly’s Soldotna seat are incumbent Tyson Cox and Don Boston. Brent Johnson, who currently holds the assembly’s central seat, is running unopposed for reelection.
KDLL and the Clarion are holding live, in-person candidate forums on Mondays from 6-7 p.m. through Oct. 31 at the Joyce K. Carver Soldotna Public Library. 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.
Races covered through this candidate forum 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.
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 email@example.com. More information about KDLL and The Peninsula Clarion’s 2022 Candidate Forum Series can be found online at kdll.org or at peninsulaclarion.com.
