Letter: Candidates forum help appreciated

On behalf of the League of Women Voters of the Red River Valley, I wish to thank those who played a part in the successful city of Moorhead candidates’ forum held at the Hjemkomst Center.

More than 100 people attended the forum and asked important questions of the candidates for Moorhead City Council and mayor. Thanks to the Senior Connections, who co-sponsored the forum, and to Charley Johnson of the Fargo-Morhead Convention and Visitors Bureau for skillfully moderating the event.

League members and volunteers assisted the audience in making sure they were an active part of the discussion.

The LWVRRV wants all citizens to be informed about candidates, issues and, most importantly, to exercise their right to vote. When it comes to voter education about candidates and issues, nobody does it better than the LWV.

I encourage Moorhead residents to make their voices heard in this election and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Bakke is voter service chair for League of Women Voters of the Red River Valley.
