Video of our candidate forum for the SSD 6 (South St. Paul) School Board is now available. Due to the number of candidates the forum was held in three groups on September 29 and October 1. Each candidate was asked the same questions and allotted the same amount of time to respond. The candidates who participated are Bernie Beermann, Gage Kemp, Wendy Felton, Jean Lubke, Anne Claflin, Kim Humann, Nicole Scheiber, Ashley Wickenhauser-Greif, Brian Counihan, Fred Everson, Hugh Kenety, and Erica Petersen. Other candidates who will appear on the ballot include John Wilcox, Michael Mathews, Colinda Blackbird, Tim Felton, Deborah Franzen, Jeff McClellan, Ted Pieper, Thomas Rongitsch, Peter Skwira, and Bill Arend. The video includes automated closed captions. Four of the 22 candidates will be elected when the election concludes on November 8.
Voters may familiarize themselves with the candidates more by reading this webpage created by South St. Paul Public Schools. Each candidate was asked to answer a questionnaire describing their background and priorities. Information about how to vote is available on our Voter Resources page.
