Watch candidate forums on CAT-7, city website

Did you miss the Oct. 21 Cloquet candidate forum? Don’t despair.

The forum is running at 6 p.m. every night through Monday, Nov. 5, on CAT-7 for Mediacom cable subscribers.

Residents with online access can watch the forum anytime by clicking on this link: https://cloquetmn.new.swagit.com/videos/87477

If that doesn't work, go to cloquetmn.gov. Click on “I want to … watch a meeting,” then choose “archived videos/city council” and “Election Forum.” Online users can choose to watch via video or download an audio MP4 file of the forum.

Featured races (in order of appearance) included candidates for Cloquet City Council Ward 5 and District 1 Carlton County Commissioner — Dick Brenner only, challenger Erik Blesener couldn’t make it — followed by Cloquet School Board candidates, then legislative candidates for state house and senate.

The Pine Knot News also has available free 2020 voter guides with information on all the contested races in the county. Stop by the office at 122 Avenue C to get one.
