(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Voters got their first look at the seven candidates running for the St. Joseph School District's Board of Education in the April 3 election.

The United Democrats Club of Northwest Missouri hosted the event Wednesday evening in St. Joseph.

With the community and school board focused on several key issues including potential budget cuts and a new superintendent, current board members know the importance of how this election will shape the future of the district.

"Getting the right three people sitting in those seats is really one of the most important things this community will decide," Board member Lori Prussman said. "Who sits in those seats will decide what the future of the district and the community looks like."

Several more candidate forums are scheduled over the next few weeks in advance of the April election. 

The next forum will be hosted by the PTA Counsel at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 5 at the Troester Media Center.
