Since preparations for the recent sale of the Ste. Genevieve Herald took some time on the part of our staff, scheduling the candidates forums for the April 7 Municipal Election was delayed a bit from the normal schedule.
Candidates are being invited to two candidates forums — one on Tuesday, March 24, in the city of St. Mary for the five candidates there; and one on Wednesday, March 25, at Ste. Genevieve City Hall.
Both forums will begin at 6 p,m.
The forum in St. Mary at the CMA Hall will be a roundtable format with the five candidates — mayoral hopefuls Gloria Bader, Paul Franklin and Carl Wyatt and Ward 1 aldermanic candidates Clyde Cassoutt and Adam Bequette — all discussing issues during the one-hour session.
The forum on March 25 in Ste. Genevieve will include the three candidates for Ward 1 alderman in that city along with the four candidates for three seats on the Ste. Genevieve R-II Board of Education and three candidates for the Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital board.
