Voters in the Frazee-Vergas School District, take note:

The first of two candidate forums for school board candidates is set for 7 p.m. today at the Frazee Events Center.


The forum will be hosted by the Lakes Region League of Women Voters.

Participating will be candidates Carey Alger, Matt Bauer, Ken Fett, Mary Lepisto, Kevin Litzau, Jim Nelson, Don Thorp, Chris Wacker and Rich Ziegler.

Candidate Brenda Como has not confirmed.

There are four open seats on the Frazee-Vergas School Board. The Aug. 10 Minnesota primary election will narrow the field of 10 candidates to eight for the November general election.

Candidates will give a 2-minute opening statement. Written questions will be submitted from the audience, with timed responses.

The moderator will be Helen Foltz of Detroit Lakes, owner of Papa Murphy's Pizza.
