A series of candidate forums is scheduled for Tuesday for races for Duluth School Board, Duluth City Council, and Duluth mayor. The forums are a great chance for voters to hear directly from those hoping to win or retain public office.
The forums will be free and first-come, first-seated inside the Duluth Playhouse at the Depot, 506 W. Michigan St. The News Tribune and Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring and moderating the exchanges.
Can’t make it? Watch a livestream at duluthnewstribune.com, where the forums will be posted later for viewing on-demand.
