Democrats sponsor city candidate forums

Winning City Council candidates will be spending a lot of time here on Monday nights.

With the city primary election set for Sept. 12, a little less than a month away, the Yellowstone County Democratic Study Group, also known as the Democrats Breakfast Club, is offering a few more chances to see City Council candidates in action.

The Democratic group has already hosted two events for mayoral candidates and another for Ward 3 City Council candidates. This Wednesday, it will have City Council candidates from Ward 1 — Joshua Kostelecky, Charlie Smillie and Mike Yakawich — as speakers at a no-host breakfast forum at the McCormick Café, 2419 Montana Ave., starting at 7 a.m.

There will be a question-and-answer session and the public is welcome. There is generally enough time for any person to ask specific questions of the candidates.

Ward 1 takes in the Heights south of Hilltop Road, the North Side west to Virginia Lane and the South Side west to Hallowell Lane.

The Breakfast Club will have candidates for Ward 2 on Aug. 23; Ward 4 on Aug. 30; and Ward on Sept. 6.

After the primary, on Tuesday, Sept. 19, at the Fortin Culinary Center, 2112 Fourth Ave. N., the Yellowstone Democratic Club will hold a dinner-forum for all City Council candidates.
