Budget hearing and meeting the candidates
The Mohonasen Board of Education will host a budget hearing at 6 p.m., Monday, May 10, in the high school LGI. Attendees will have an opportunity to “meet” the board candidates following the hearing.
The Meet the Candidates portion will involve candidates reading prepared opening and closing statements and responding to questions from Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Laurel Logan-King, who will moderate the event. The public may view the the event but will not be able to ask their own questions. Here are the candidates’ bios, photos and statements.
Seating is limited in the LGI and social distancing will be practiced. Therefore, those wishing to attend are asked to RSVP to Kate Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat. The hearing, as well as the Meet the Candidates portion of the evening, will be livestreamed from the LGI and recorded for future viewing. The link to the livestream will be posted on the district website by Monday morning on May 10.
