Forums to feature candidates, bond issue information
A candidate forum will bring area candidates to Tonganoxie next week, while a forum offering information about the proposed Tonganoxie USD 464 bond issue will take place later in the month.
The candidate forum will start at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at VFW Hall in Tonganoxie.
Sponsored by First State Bank and Trust, the candidate forum will bring candidates together in various races.
Candidates in U.S. House, as well as local Kansas Senate and House races and county races, have been invited to the forum.
There also will be a public forum from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, at Tonganoxie Elementary School.
Patrons can ask questions about various aspects of the bond issue, which is for a $27.2 million bond to build a new elementary school near Tonganoxie Middle School. If the bond passes, state aid would cover about $9.3 million.
