BEMIDJI — The Bemidji Parent’s Union is hosting an event for the public to meet Bemidji school board candidates from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14 at Hampton Inn and Suites’ Mississippi Room.

The featured candidates, recommended by Bemidji Parent’s Union, will include four-year candidates Nicole Jaranson, Anna Manecke and Dave Wall along with two-year candidates Justin Hoover and Marie Claire Richey.

“It has never been more important to pay attention to your child’s school and that starts by voting for candidates who will support your rights as a parent,” a release said.

Three four-year positions and two two-year positions are up for grabs on the Bemidji Area Schools Board of Education with the general election coming up on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

With about a hundred people in attendance, the forum was split into two sessions. Candidates vying for three four-year positions took part in a question-and-answer session moderated by Larissa Donovan in the morning. Candidates vying for two two-year positions then participated in an afternoon session.
