The Riverside Area Community Club and The Kalona News will sponsor a forum for city council and mayoral candidates to answer questions from the public.

The forum will be Thursday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church parish hall.

Candidates will be given two minutes for opening comments and will then answer questions submitted by the audience. Each candidate will have up to two minutes to answer each question. The forum will conclude with closing comments by each of the candidates.

The forum should take about 90 minutes. The Kalona News Publisher Jim Johnson will moderate the forum. Johnson will ask a number of questions before opening the forum to the audience.

Two four-year terms on the City Council are available. Edgar McGuire, Andy Rodgers and incumbents Tom Sexton and Ralph Schnoebelen are on the ballot for these terms.

The two-year mayor’s position is open, too. Current Mayor Allen Schneider and Joseph A. Graff are vying for the spot.

St. Mary’s Church is located at 41 St. Mary’s St. in Riverside.
