Your news update from the Malheur Enterprise

Good morning!

Election season is onus again and the crew at the Malheur Enterprise will help you get acquainted with candidates and what they want to do with the government power they are asking voters to give them. This ranges from city council seats to the hotly-contested governor’s race.

For Ontario voters, the Enterprise and the Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce will conduct a candidate’s forum on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at Treasure Valley Community College. The forum will give you a chance to hear from those running to be Ontario mayor and those seeking seats on the Ontario City Council. We’ll get you more details soon, but mark the evening event on your calendar – you won’t want to miss it.

As we shape our coverage, we want your help. We want candidates to address the local issues important to you.

Questions?

So, here’s your assignment. Think of three questions you would ask a candidate for city council or mayor if they were sitting at your dining room table. Send them in an email to me at [email protected]

What to ask? Focus on matters that local officials can influence. They can’t do much about gas prices, but they can do something about homelessness. They can do something about public safety. They can do something about the condition of the community, from streets to parks to trails.

Over the years, I have found that readers ask great questions. I’m eager to hear yours.
