Community Conversation - Candidate's Forum
The Town of Cable has an election coming up on April 4th. Two individuals are running for the Town Chairman position and three individuals stand to fill two Supervisor positions. The Forest Lodge Library offers you this opportunity to meet, greet and ask questions of the candidates.
This Candidate’s Forum will be held at the Cable Community Centre on Thursday, March 23rd at 6:30. All candidates will be given an opportunity to offer opening and closing statements, describing their reasons for running for this office and discussing their vision for the future of our community. In between, those in attendance will be given the opportunity to ask questions. If you don’t feel comfortable speaking up yourself, cards will be available to write your question on and the event moderator will ask your question.
Tom Frels and Art Hancock are the two candidates running for the Town Chairman position. Susan Thurn and Jeff Rasmussen, incumbents, are running for the Supervisor positions. Jack Radecki is running a write-in campaign for Supervisor. James Bolen, Chamber Director, will serve as Moderator. Laura Bjork, Town of Cable Clerk, will talk a little bit about local elections.
This forum will be limited to questions about local or area issues. Questions on other subjects, or questions of an adversarial nature, will be disallowed.
Beverages and treats will be available after the forum to allow an opportunity for further interaction. The library hopes that area voters will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about their candidates for public office.
Big News from a Little Library
Why are these people smiling? Well, the rumor you've heard is true. The library ... well, technically the Towns of Cable & Namakagon... purchased the Aldrich property adjacent to the library. We're very excited! We look forward to working with our neighbors, our Towns, our patrons and area businesses in visioning the sort of library addition that will provide wanted and needed services. Stay tuned!
If you would like to be part of our visioning effort we’d be happy and grateful for your input! Please contact Library Director Kristine Lendved, or one of our Board Trustees and let us know you’re interested in participating.
