Candidate Forum – Buena Vista School District

The League of Women Voters Chaffee County hosted an Oct. 14, 2015 forum for candidates for the Buena Vista school district.
LWVCC’s goal is to provide opportunities for voters to learn about the issues, listen to and meet candidates running for public office.

The forum has two parts. At 7 p.m., school board candidates will make statements and answer questions. At 8, the voters will have the opportunity to meet informally with all candidates.
Buena Vista School Board candidates Norm Nyberg and Nancy Best from District C; at-large candidates Judy Lynn, Lindsey Tanner, Suzette Hachmann and Tracy Storms have all accepted invitations to participate beginning at 7 p.m. Voters will elect one candidate from District C, one from District A and two at-large candidates.
District A candidate Kevin Osborne is unable to attend, meaning that his opponent, Erin Flavin, who did accept, will not be taking questions due to LWV’s non-partisan policy. This policy states that there must be at least two candidates per office participating in the moderated forum.
Osborne may have a representative read an introductory statement.
The Oct. 14 forum will take place in the Pinion Room of the Buena Vista Community Center, 715 E. Main St.
