Blue Valley Post/Shawnee Mission Post to host 11 candidate forums ahead of local elections

As part of our "citizens agenda" approach to covering local elections, we'll be hosting 11 candidate forums this fall and asking the people who want to represent you in local government about the issues that matter to you most.

The Shawnee Mission Post and the soon-to-launch Blue Valley Post will be hosting a series of 11 candidate forums ahead of this fall’s local elections, giving Johnson County voters a chance to hear directly from the candidates who want to represent them in city government and on school boards.

As has been the case since the organization started hosting these events nearly a decade ago, the questions we’ll ask the candidates will come directly from our readers.
