In an effort to raise awareness of the environmental issues in the region and learn the position of those seeking public office, an online forum will be 7 p.m. Oct. 21 via Zoom webinar featuring candidates running for State Senate District 10, State Representative in Districts 10A and 10B, Crow Wing County Commissioner and Crow Wing Soil and Water Board.

This program is sponsored by Crow Wing Lakes and Rivers Alliance, Brainerd Lakes United for the Environment and the Brainerd Lakes Area Audubon Society. It is free and open to the public.

Questions have been prepared in advance and will be asked to the candidates in turn by a moderator. The public will be able to see and hear the candidates but will not be able to interact in real time. Equal time will be given to all participating candidates. The sponsoring organizations will not endorse any candidates and the forum will be conducted in a non-partisan manner.
