T.B. Scott Free Library, the Tomahawk Public Library, the League of Women Voters and the UW-Madison Extension-Lincoln County will co-host a Lincoln County Sheriff Candidate Forum to be held on Monday October 24th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Merrill Enrichment Center. Doors will open at 5:30 pm.

The candidates for the office of Sherriff of Lincoln County are Garrett Dinges, Ken Schneider, and Marlyn Woodward. Refreshments will be served.

The Candidate Forum will provide the public with an opportunity to see the candidates, listen to their ideas for the future of the Lincoln County Sherriff’s Department, and hear the candidate’s responses to citizen concerns.

Questions for the candidates can be submitted in advance either through the T.B Scott Free Library website or the Tomahawk Public Library website. Citizens may also submit questions in writing at either of the two libraries.  Also, beginning at 5:30 pm on the day of the event, those who attend in persons can submit their questions for the candidates by filling out a card and placing it into a box. Questions will be collected and sorted by topic in order to ensure a wide range of issues are covered. All three candidates will provide opening and closing statements as part of the Forum.

The fall election will be held on Tuesday, November 8th, with the polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
