Fairfield school board candidate forum Oct. 12

Oct 06, 2017

The four candidates vying for a spot on the Fairfield Community School District’s board of directors will participate in a forum Oct. 12.

The forum will begin at 7 p.m. in the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The candidates are Ryan Kurka, Jennifer Anderson, Ben Picard and Michael Lane. They are competing to fill the vacancy left by former school board president Phil Miller when he resigned in mid-August after winning election to the Iowa House of Representatives. A little more than two years remain on his term.

Candidates will have three minutes each to answer four questions about themselves and their vision for the Fairfield Community School District. The four questions, one of which will be provided to the candidates in advance of the forum, were developed in collaboration with the Iowa Association of School Boards, the statewide membership organization that supports Iowa school boards and public schools through education, advocacy, and service.

Ledger news editor Andy Hallman will moderate the forum.

The candidate forum is sponsored by the Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce, Fairfield Economic Development Association and the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.
