Incumbent Tresa Boden, running unopposed for Position 3, was not at the candidate forum.

Each candidate was allotted equal time to present an opening statement, reply to submitted questions and make concluding remarks.

On March 25, the Chamber hosted the same type of forum for City Council candidates. Video from that event follows the school board forum in the player above, or you can click here for the related article:
