American Democracy Project to host election candidate forum at UNK


KEARNEY – The American Democracy Project at University of Nebraska at Kearney is hosting an election candidate forum from 7-8:30 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 4) at UNK’s Copeland Hall room 140.

The public event will feature candidates running for offices in Kearney and Buffalo County.

“Candidates will tell you about themselves, offices they seek and why they think public service is important,” said Diane Duffin, event coordinator and UNK associate professor of political science. “You’ll learn more about your community and make a more informed vote.”

The event will not include debates, but instead a chance for voters to learn more about candidates, Duffin said. Candidates in uncontested races will discuss public service.

Candidates currently scheduled to attend include:

  • Buffalo County Sheriff – Neil Miller
  • Buffalo County Attorney – Shawn Eatherton
  • Central Community College Board of Directors – Roger Davis
  • Kearney City Council candidates – Marion McDermott, Tami Moore
  • Kearney Public Schools Board candidates – Drew Blessing, Wendy Kreis
  • Nebraska State Board of Education District 6 – Maureen Nickels
