The local election cycle will kick into high gear this coming Monday, when city candidates take to the mic during a Candidate Forum.
Mayor Elizabeth Kautz will face two-time challenger Jerry Willenburg, who gave Kautz the toughest race of her long career in 2008, according to Sun ThisWeek. Vying for two council seats will be former Council Member Steve Cherney, Bruce Johnson, Suzanne Nguyen and incumbent Mary Sherry.
This candidate forum is presented by the Burnsville Chamber of Commerce. If you wish to see the forum, it will be streamed live online at www.burnsville.org/meetings and on Burnsville Community Television (BCTV) Channel 16. Check www.burnsville.tv for replay times.
You can also watch the forum in person at City Hall, 100 Civic Center Parkway, in the Council Chambers. The event runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
