Candidate forum set for Oct. 10


Last updated 10/3/2013 at 10:46am

A forum giving voters a chance to see and ask questions of candidates in the Havre municipal elections will be held at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 10, at Havre High School’s auditorium.

The Havre Daily News has invited all mayoral and City Council candidates to the forum.

The highlight to the evening will be a joint discussion with current Mayor Tim Solomon, the Democratic candidate for re-election, and former Mayor Bob Rice, a Republican.

The forum is planned for early October because ballots in the all-mail-in election will be mailed out on Oct.15, through votes will not be counted until Nov. 5.

The newspaper is asking people to submit questions for the candidates.

The newspaper and moderator, John Ita, a Havre High School civics teacher, will select several questions from the submissions to ask the candidates.

Fourth Ward City Council candidate Matthew Boucher, a Republican, will also answer questions. His Democratic opponent, Karen Datko, has declined the invitation to appear, citing previous commitments.

Unopposed candidates have been invited to speak for three minutes to introduce themselves and talk about their plans.

They include:

• Terry Lilletvetd, the unopposed Democrat in Ward 1.

• Democrat Janet Trethewey in Ward 2

• Democrat Jay Pyette for a four-year term in Ward 3

• Democrat Allen “Woody” Woodwick

"We are sponsoring this forum as part of our continuing coverage of the 2013 politcal campaign," said Havre Daily News Publisher Stacy Mantle.

"We want voters to get a chance to see the candidates up close a hear what they have to say."

• Email them to [email protected],

• Submit them on Havre Daily News Facebook page,

• Drop them off at our office or mail them to 119 2nd St., Havre, MT 59501.
