Citizens Project has announced that the District 3 forum scheduled for Oct. 23 has been cancelled due to "lack of participation from candidates."

——- ORIGINAL POST, 4:02 P.M., TUESDAY, OCT. 8 ——-

I hate to say it, but the November elections are right around the corner.

Among the decisions that will be made in this election cycle is who will serve on local school boards. Hardly the most glamorous of elected offices, school board members can nevertheless have a huge influence on children's lives and on the vitality of neighborhoods. (Remember all those school closures in Colorado Springs School District 11? Those were authorized by a school board. )

Thus, it's worth it to learn a little about the candidates ahead of election day. Citizens Project is once again offering election forums to the public for each of the affected boards. Read on and mark your calendar:
