NKyTribune’s first community forum for candidates tonight at Erlanger library branch; 4th forum added

The NKyTribune’s first community forum for candidates in the November election will be held tonight at 6:30 at the Kenton County Library Erlanger branch.

There is the lineup:

State Legislative Race — District 66
(for seat vacated by Rep. Addia Wuchner)

Lex Hannan
Roberto Henriquez
C. Ed Massey
(Stacie Earl – no response)

Starting approximately 7:40 p.m.:

Erlanger Mayoral Race
(open seat, vacated by Tyson Hermes)

Randy Blankenship
Jessica Fette

Mark Hansel, managing editor of the NKyTribune, will moderate. Questions in writing will be accepted from the audience.

Rules of civility and common courtesy will apply. No signs will be allowed into the meeting spaces.

The NKyTribune does not endorse candidates but provides a public service platform for honest and open dialogue.

A fourth forum has been added to our schedule, thanks to a collaboration with NKY’s Kentuckians for the Commonwealth and Newport’s Westside Citizens Coalition. It will be for candidates for the Newport City Commission and will be held from 6-9 p.m. on October 18 at Headquarters Historic Event Center in Newport. Details will be forthcoming.

Here is the schedule-to-date of the other forums for candidates:

Saturday, October 13, 10 a.m.
Kenton County Public Library – Erlanger Branch

State Legislative Race — District 61
(seat vacated by Brian Linder of Dry Ridge)

Starting about 11:15 a.m., these candidates will be heard in succession, as their opponents have declined to participate:

Josh Blair — District 63

Jesse Parks — District 60

Col Owens – District 69

Monday, October 29, 6:30 p.m.
