Mountain Vista Media will host a student-led forum for the six candidates of the upcoming Douglas County Board of Education election Thursday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. in Mountain Vista’s main auditorium. The event is open to the public.
All six candidates, challengers Anne Marie-Lemieux, David Ray and Wendy Vogel and incumbents Kevin Larsen, Craig Richardson and Richard Robbins, have confirmed their attendance in the event.
The debate will begin with opening statements from each candidate.
The question-and-answer period will then consist of anywhere from seven to 10 questions depending on time. Questions will be presented by editors and reporters from high school media programs in the Douglas County School District.
After the question-and-answer period, each candidate will receive three minutes to provide a closing statement.
The forum also will be livestreamed on VistaNow.org. Students also are expected to live tweet the event using #dcsdforum.
