On Wednesday, February 9 at 6 p.m., the Hibbing Community College Student Senate will host a forum for the candidates running for February’s special election to fill the seat of former state Rep. Tony Sertich (DFL-Chisholm). The forum will feature DFL candidate Carly Melin, Republican candidate Paul Jacobson and Independence Party candidate Cynthia Kafut-Hagen. The forum will be held in Room L-10 at HCC. HCC Student Senate President Tabatha Jauhola will moderate the 90-minute, five-to-seven-question event. Candidates will face-off in the Feb. 15 special election.(Disclosure: I advice the student senate at HCC and will seek to separate my role there and my commentary here at the blog. I aim to acquire video of the event and share that in lieu of a recap).
