Fire Board Candidate Forum Canceled by Mike Klund
March 23, 2011 - Tonight's candidate forum for the Mehlville Fire Protection District Board of Directors race has been canceled.
Candidate Michael Klund told the Call he will be unable to attend due to a family emergency.
Klund is challenging incumbent Aaron Hilmer for a six-year seat in the April 5 election. A third candidate, R.L. Praprotnik, has withdrawn from the race and will support Hilmer. Praprotnik's name will remain on the ballot.
The forum was to be moderated by the League of Women Voters and co-sponsored by Call Newspapers. League policy states that the group cannot hold a candidate forum with only one candidate.
