As the election cycle gets closer to the big day, groups are organizing ways to help voters learn more about the candidates.

On the Range, the Virginia Area American Association of University Women (AAUW) is sponsoring a Candidate Forum for the Virginia City Mayoral and City Councilor race.

Chris Culbert, a longtime AAUW member said, “It’s critically important, in this day and age, to have direct contact with the people who are running for office. We are hoping for a good turnout.”

Co-president Susie Pearsall added, “It’s important to focus on local races. This is where we live, and where we raised our children. Being in AAUW has given myself and Chris a chance to stay informed. And these local races are very important.”

The forum is coming up Wednesday, October 12, 2022, 4:00-6:00pm at the Mesabi Range College Auditorium.

Each candidate will be given an opportunity to introduce themselves, answer pre-determined questions, and participate in a Q & A with the public.
