The Gould Citizens Advisory Council will host a candidate forum on May 5 at 6 p.m. at the Gould Lions Club on U.S. 65 in Gould.
All declared candidates for Lincoln County contested races have been invited to inform voters how they intend to address critical quality of life issues that face the city of Gould and Lincoln County.
The forum provides an opportunity for citizens to meet and talk with the people who will soon be representing the county. The candidates will have an opportunity to ensure that their positions on the issues are fairly and accurately represented.
Forum organizers are urging citizens to attend the forum so that they can hear from candidates before the election so that they go into the voting booth as informed voters. Citizens are also urged to arrive with a few questions in mind for the candidates.
The Gould Citizens Advisory Council is a community-based group with members from Lincoln County. The organization is based in Gould and encourages citizens to get involved in community activism and the political process at the local and state levels.
