DeKALB – Residents will have a chance to ask questions of their potential local leaders Wednesday at DeKalb City Hall.

The League of Women Voters of DeKalb County will host Candidates Night on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the DeKalb City Hall Council Chambers on the second floor of the building at 200 S. Fourth St., according to a news release.

Organizers have invited candidates for the following offices to participate: DeKalb mayor, aldermen and clerk; Kishwaukee College trustee; DeKalb County Regional Board of Education trustee; DeKalb Township offices; DeKalb School District 428 board; and DeKalb Park District.

Citizens can submit questions before the event at the door by filling out a small card.

Questions should be directed at all candidates in a particular race and not at one individual, according to the news release.

Those wanting to submit questions should do so 10 minutes before the event begins.

The event will be televised on public access Channel 14 and streamed online at www.cityofdekalb.com.

A candidates night sponsored by the Greater Area Kirkland Chamber of Commerce will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the Kirkland Fire Station.

That event will feature candidates for Kirkland mayor, Village Board, library board, park district and road commissioner.

The election will take place April 9.
