WQOW teams up with local entities to host candidate forums

WQOW 18 Election

Eau Claire (WQOW) - As we get closer to the April election, News 18 is teaming up with the Eau Claire Chamber of Commerce, Leader-Telegram, Valley Media Works and Wisconsin Public Radio to host a pair of candidate forums.

The first is the contested race for Altoona School Board.

Incumbent Terry Neff is facing a pair of challengers - Hillarie Roth and Gregg Webert.

You'll be able to meet the candidates for that race on March 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Altoona High School.

On March 19 at 6:30 p.m., the two candidates running for Eau Claire City Council will face off at CVTC. Dale Poynter and Mai Xiong are each looking to fill the vacancy created when Laura Benjamin stepped down from the council. News 18's Shannon Hoyt will moderate that forum.

Both races will be on the April 7 ballot.
