STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The 2019 Election Forum, hosted by Steamboat Pilot & Today, the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors, Routt County Republicans, Routt County Democrats and the Economic Development Council, will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at The Steamboat Grand.
The forum will feature candidates running for Steamboat Springs City Council and the Steamboat Springs School Board in contested races.
For council, incumbent Jason Lacy will be squaring off against challenger George Krawzoff for the two-year, at-large seat. The race for one two-year seat on the school board includes Chresta Brinkman and Andrew Heppelmann. Mayling Simpson, who also filed to run, announced Monday she was withdrawing from the race.

The forum, which will be moderated by Pilot & Today Editor Lisa Schlichtman, will also cover local and state ballot issues, including the school district’s bond issue and mill-levy for teachers’ salaries, the city’s proposed property tax for fire and emergency services and propositions CC and DD.
