Fair on Saturday to feature candidates for Lawrence school board, city commission

Candidates for Lawrence City Commission and the Lawrence school board will gather Saturday morning for a Candidate Fair sponsored by the local Voter Education Coalition.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to noon at the Lawrence Visitors Center, 402 N. Second. All 14 candidates in the two races have indicated they plan to participate in the event. Each candidate will have a table from which to pass out campaign materials and meet with voters.

“It’s a good opportunity for local voters to get their final questions answered before Tuesday’s election,” said VEC co-chair Pattie Johnston.

The Voter Education Coalition is a nonpartisan partnership of more than 20 community organizations aimed at promoting civil dialogue and voter participation. A full list of partners is available on the VEC’s Facebook page.
