Countywide Candidate Forum Tonight in Yorkville

Forum set to begin at 7 p.m.

Tonight candidates for various Kendall County offices will square off in a forum hosted by WSPY 107.1 FM and the Kendall County Farm Bureau.

Candidates vying for County Board Districts 1 and 2, County Coroner and Circuit Clerk will be in attendance.

The forum features minute-long opening and closing statements by each candidate and questions posed by local reporters. WSPY 107.1 FM News Director Ryan Morton will moderate the forum at the historic courthouse in Yorkville.

The countywide forum is the second of two forums hosted by WSPY and the Farm Bureau. Legislative and Congressional candidates appeared at a similar forum Oct. 18. Residents have been able to submit questions for the forum through the WSPY Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/WSPYradio.

The forum will be held at the Historic Kendall County Courthouse, 110 W. Madison St., begins at 7 p.m. and will also be broadcast live on WSPY 107.1 FM.

5 will get you 10, one of the Coroner candidates doesn't show.

Well.. It was a interesting debate. One professional guy that has been at the coroners office for over 20+years, while the other guy has no clue. Toftoy stayed his ground and courteous to his opponent even though he could have buried Dabney with Dabney's short comings as a person and citizen of the county. No deputies carry weapons, even though they are trained and could. Dabney takes a swipe at the deputies by calling them "unprofessional". I'm sure Dabney is the best character to judge professionalism with his record at work and his personal finances.

Apparently the debate did not offer you enough for your camera, Milliron. Or else you would have been airing that. No, it just showed you how bad Dabney looked on your film. The best part I liked was when Dabney stated all of the new databases and software that he would look into for the office if elected. THE GUY CANNOT EVEN OPERATE THE FIRE HOUSES COMPUTER FOR REPORTS! So what makes you think he can research other software or available databases to use?
