GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) This fall, seven candidates will be running for three District 51 school board seats. On Monday, those candidates were in front of the community at a candidate forum held in the ballroom at Colorado Mesa University.

The seven candidates were asked a series of questions. Many of the questions were ones submitted by those attending the forum. Candidates feel the forum is a good way to interact with the community. District 51 personnel and parents were glad to share their concerns with the candidates.

"It's extremely important for the school board, that the candidates for the school board know what's important for education. It's important that they believe in public education and believe in working hard for what's good for our kids, " says Amy Agapito.

The forum was hosted by the CMU Associated Student Government, along with Strong Schools, and Strong Community.
