There will be a local forum for NAFC school board candidates at the Roadhouse on Thursday, October 13.


And Amanda herself is moderating.

Is a candidate’s position on the Hibbard Referendum about to become a litmus test? Inquiring minds want to know. I intend to attend.

As a side note, I wonder if the Roadhouse has heard about that whole craft beer fad thingy yet? I’m not holding my breath.

BEAM: Learn about school board candidates at local forum, by Amanda Beam (News and Tribune)

… Beginning at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, the (Floyd County Democratic Women’s Caucus) will host a panel featuring those running for the board of the New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated School Corp. at the New Albany Roadhouse on Graybrook Lane. The discussion will follow their monthly business meeting which will start 30 minutes prior. The event is open to the public.

Members of the organization have submitted questions, and yours truly will moderate the discussion. Eight of the nine contenders on the ballot have said they will participate.

Each respondent will deliver an introduction, and then have two minutes to address the topic. Please note this is not a debate, but a session designed to inform voters on candidates’ views of issues in education today. After the panel, those participating will be able to mingle with voters and answer any additional questions.
