The Elk River Area Chamber of Commerce began a series of candidate forums on Oct. 6 at Elk River City Hall.
On tap first were six candidates vying for one of three seats on the Sherburne County Board of Commissioners. Each incumbent has one challenger.
For more on these candidates check out the voters guide in this newspaper.

All three incumbents are seeking reelection. The Star News published a voters guide on candidates for these races and on races for Elk River and Zimmerman city councils this past week.
