The second forum will feature candidates for Greene County offices and is slated for Thursday, Oct. 11, at 7 pm, also at the elementary school cafeteria. Libertarian Thomas Laehn, who is running unopposed for county attorney, and Democrat Marcia Tasler, who is running unopposed for county recorder, will speak first.

They’ll be followed by county treasurer candidates Democrat Donna Lawson and Republican Katlynn Gannon-Mechaelsen, and county supervisor candidates Republican Dawn Rudolph and Democrat Patti Naylor (District 2) and Republican Tom Contner and Democrat Melissa Frederick (District 3).
