NRHEG PTO to host candidate forums
The NRHEG PTO will host a pair of Meet the Candidates forums for potential school board members. Five people are running for the three open spots, and they will answer a number of prepared questions on Monday, Oct. 22, in Ellendale, and Monday, Oct. 29, in New Richland.
Both forums will begin at 7 p.m. in the respective school media centers. Please plan to attend and get more insight on the people who will help run our school district in the years to come and be able to make an informed choice on election day!
