The League of Women Voters of Ames & Story County, along with the Center for Rural Affairs, invites the public to participate in a forum for the Senate District 25 candidates on Wednesday, May 23 in the Nevada Public Library, 631 K Ave., Nevada.


The forum will go from 6-7:30 p.m. All three candidates competing in the June 5 primary election have been invited — Republicans Annette Sweeney (incumbent) and Chad Buss and Democrat Tracy Freese. Tracy, who is unchallenged in the primary, will not be attending; however, we expect to hold another forum prior to the general election with all the candidates. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions of Annette and Chad and hear their views on issues affecting Iowans.


Senate District 25 encompasses Harden and Grundy counties; SE Butler county and Story County except Gilbert, Ames, Kelley and Slater. The League of Women Voters and the Center for Rural Affairs are nonpartisan organizations. Contact Mary (515-290-5827, msand@isunet.net) or Katie (515-777-9104, katier@cfra.org) with questions.
