  • Candidates for the Dodge City Commission will once again answer questions from moderators and the public at a forum tonight in the Lois Flanagan room of the public library at 7 p.m.
    The seven candidates were invited by the Dodge City Area Chamber of Commerce and Women's Chamber to explain their views of governance, their ideas and why they would be the best candidate to elect on April 1.
    Voters will have the opportunity to select up to three of the seven to represent them on the city's government. The top two winners will receive four year terms, the third place candidate will receive a two-year term.
    Citizens that are residents of Dodge City can vote at the Dodge City Civic Center or, through noon on March 31, vote early at the Ford County Government Center during regular business hours.
    With Commissioner Jim Lembright not seeking reelection, at least one new commissioner will be chosen.
    At the previous forum, six of the candidates were able to attend, and told the audience their views on the proposed water park, infrastructure, elections and other topics.
    The moderators, "Today in Kansas" host Margaret Butcher and Daily Globe reporter Christopher Guinn hope the next round of questions will help voters put more separation between the candidates in what has been a genial campaign season.
    Refreshments will be provided at the forum which is expected to last no longer than two hours. Cards will be distributed to audience members before the forum to write questions for the moderators to ask.
