Residents in Linn County will have the opportunity to hear from candidates they’ll see on their November ballots during a “Meet the Candidate” event Thursday evening.  Montgomery said things will get underway around 6:00 p.m.  “We’re going to have a soup and dessert supper and then at 7:00 we’re going to let the candidates get up and have about five minutes a piece to give an overview of why they’re running, what they’re running for, and why we should vote for them,” said Montgomery, “This is just to help the public get informed about the local races.”]

The event will be held at the Lambert Building located at 801 Pershing Drive in Laclede.  There is a $5 charge for the meal.  More information can be found by visiting the community calendar tab.
