Election Season Means Candidate Forums

candidate forums.pngThis election season, Greater Mankato Growth, along with several partner organizations will host a series of candidate forums aimed at providing an opportunity for meaningful exchange between candidates and voters in areas impacting the community, business and the overall vitality of the region. Greater Mankato Growth is announcing the forums for federal and state office that our organization will host in advance of the November General Election. The public is invited to attend any and all of these free events. There is no registration needed for the candidate forums. We continue to work on arranging candidate forums for local offices and an announcement on those forums will be forthcoming.

In addition to the candidate forums listed above, Greater Mankato Growth, as in years past, is hosting an online candidate portal that will have biographical information and candidate responses to a questionnaire from all of our key regional elections. That candidate portal will be launched at the end of September. Look for a separate announcement to be issued at that time.
