BEMIDJI — An informal gathering to meet Bemidji school board candidates will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13 in the meeting area of Lueken’s Village Foods North.

Attendees will include four-year candidates Ashley Brue, Meredith Kehoe and Jenny Frenzel along with two-year candidates Julie Laitala and Daniel Nynas.

“Candidates in attendance are not necessarily forming endorsements together, but they share similar views on some important topics and feel it is important to connect with the public to share those views and hear from you,” 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.
