The Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce and the Storm Lake Business and Professional Women have invited the three candidates vying for the two city council seats and the two candidates for mayor to a public "Meet the Candidates" session scheduled for Wednesday, October 24 at 7 p.m., in the City Council Chambers.
Incumbent City Council candidates Jim Treat and Denny Vaudt and challenger Sherise Gibson and Incumbent Mayor Jon Kruse and challenger Tom Ellis have been invited to share their views on the city government and discuss questions solicited from public. Representatives from radio stations KAYL and KKIA, the Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune and Storm Lake Times will serve as panelists.
Questions may be submitted in writing to any the four local news media or to the Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce at PO Box 584, Storm Lake, Iowa, 50588 or Email to email@example.com.
Each candidate will give a three-minute introduction after which questions submitted in advance from the public will be asked. Responses will be limited to two minutes each. A final three minutes for final comments will conclude the evening.
It is not the intent to have questions posed directly from one candidate to another, and all candidates will be given the opportunity to answer all questions posed to them specifically. Should time allow, questions may be asked from the audience.
