Osky forum set for Tuesday night

OSKALOOSA — The public will have a chance to hear Oskaloosa City Council candidates talk about the issues at a candidate forum at 7 p.m. Tuesday at George Daily Auditorium.

The Oskaloosa Herald, KBOE radio, Communications Research Institute and Osky News are teaming up to sponsor the two-hour fourm. The forum moderator will be William Penn University Associate Vice President for Advancement Marsha Riordan.

If you cannot make it to George Daily Auditorium, you have several means to follow it live. The Oskaloosa Herald will have a live blog at www.oskaloosa.com, KBOE will broadcast the forum live as well as CRI on MCG Channel 12. The forum also will be streamed live to the Web at CRItv.org.

There are several contested races in the Nov. 5 election in Oskaloosa.

Mayor David Krutzfeldt faces challenger Denny Doud. The mayor serves a two-year term. There are four City Council seats up for election. Council members serve four-year terms. Incumbent 1st Ward Councilman Aaron Ver Steeg will compete against David Allgood and Lauren McMahan. Incumbent 3rd Ward Councilman Doug Yates and Jennifer Doland will vie for a council seat. There are also two At-Large seats on the council up for election. Incumbents Scottie Moore and Tom Walling will face challengers Jimmy Carter, Wyatt Russell and Shaun Smith.

However, not all of the candidates will attend the forum.

In a paid advertisement in The Oskaloosa Herald, candidates Denny Doud, Lauren McMahan, Jennifer Doland, Jimmy Carter and Shaun Smith have declined an invitation to participate in the Tuesday night candidate forum.

Herald Editor Duane Nollen can be reached by email at oskynews@oskyherald.com
