The Kimball High School Civics class put together the Political Forum on Monday night.
The crowd was plentiful as the entire room was full with some people standing and more chairs being taken out of other classrooms for multiple people to have more seats.
Paycen Harroun began the night introducing the officers and the candidate running for that office that was either unopposed or automatically moving onto the November ballet.
David J. Wilson, Sherry Winstrom, Cindy Rahmig, and the three county commissioners all decided to not speak. As for our Sheriff Harry Gillway was saying how he would love to share a few words. He began with the phrase, "I always choose to speak when given the chance."
Mayoral candidates Keith Prunty and James Cederberg both shared the crowd what they have been able to do, and what they plan on doing for the town of Kimball.
During the candidates discussions for the County Clerk, Clerk of District Court, City Council, and School Board, seniors in the Civics class came to ask questions for everyone to learn more about the candidates.
Candidates for County Clerk were Dawn Hickman and Cathy Sibal. Clerk of District Court were Deb Diemoz and Darcee Wheeland. City Council were Christy Warner, Stephanie Pederson, John Morrison, Jim Calvin, Aaron Rabin, Matt Bright, and Robert Martin. School Board were Jared Rich, Brad Reader, Dakota Kuhns, Travis Cook, Renee Castagna, Matthew Shoup, and Lynn Vogel who has was absent, but had Nicholas Thomas-Lewis say her part during the forum.
The primary election is on May 15.
