The Portage County Business Council will be hosting a candidate forum for the five school board candidates on Wed., March 30.
For the second time this year, the PCBC forum will be open to the public. The event is free but attendees must register in advance.
The forum will be held from 5 PM through 6:30 PM in the Foundation Room of the Portage County Business Council, 5501 Vern Holmes Drive.
The five candidates — Amy S. Dailey, Jeff Ebel, Daniel Kontos, Barb Portzen and Rory Suomi — are vying for four seats on the board. Three of the four seats carry three-year terms and one carries a one-year term.
The top three vote-getters in the April 5 election will take the three-year terms. The fourth place candidate will take the one-year term.
Each candidate will be given the chance to make brief opening and closing statements, with time limits for answers to pre-determined questions. The moderator for the forum will be Chris Sadler, retired Professor of Communication at UW-Stevens Point.
