On October 21, the Lakota East Spark hosted its biannual Lakota School Board “Candidate Night.” The candidate night is an opportunity for community members to inform themselves on issues facing the district and candidates’ stances on those issues as elections approach.
This fall, there are four candidates, two incumbents and two non-incumbents, vying for the two open positions on the Lakota District school board. Each candidate was given one minute for opening statements, followed by seven questions posed by members of the Lakota East Spark staff. Each candidate was then given two minutes to answer. Questions were given in a rotating order to ensure fairness.
