The first of four candidate forums being co-hosted by the News Tribune and the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce is this morning — and you’re invited to log in and watch.

Today’s forum features the three candidates vying for two available At Large seats on the Duluth School Board, to represent the district as a whole. They are, in alphabetical order, incumbent Kelly Durick Eder, Loren Martell, and Amber Sadowski. Each will take turns answering questions posed by moderators Matt Baumgartner, the chamber’s president, and Chuck Frederick, the News Tribune’s editorial page editor.

The newspaper and chamber have been partnering to host candidate forums for at least 11 years as part of a commitment to help eligible voters in Duluth make informed choices. The forums also inform the News Tribune’s endorsement decisions.

The forums with School Board and Duluth City Council candidates this week and next week — as well as coming content in the News Tribune, including columns written by the candidates — are valuable opportunities for voters to learn about those running, their positions, and the issues facing our community.

Election Day is Nov. 2. While there’s still plenty of time to get informed, the time is now.
