Voters got their first chance to hear from four candidates for the USD 257 Board of Education Thursday evening, even if the opportunity came via a screen.
Wesley United Methodist Church of Iola hosted a forum broadcast via Facebook Live at their Foundry location on South Kentucky. Participating were Sofie Alexander, Mandey Coltrane, Robin Griffin-Lohman and John Wilson. None has previously held public office.
The four candidates are vying for three at-large seats on the USD 257 Board of Education. The election is Tuesday, Nov. 2. Current members Jennifer Coltrane, Jared Larkey and Nancy Toland will end their service.
