Baxter candidates set the stage


More than 30 people turned out to hear Baxter City Council candidates speak out to the public during a candidate forum Thursday night in the music room at Central Lakes College.

Four candidates — Mark Cross, Tom Hice, Mari Holderness and Todd Holman — vying for two open seats with the council shared many of the same views, especially how great the community is and how much it has grown.
