The Bettendorf Community School District will be hosting a forum for the 2019 Bettendorf Board of Education candidates on Monday, October 14. Six community members are running for four open positions - Paul Castro (incumbent), Gary Goins, Joanna Doerder, Rebecca Eastman, Michael Neighbor, and Michael Pyevich (incumbent).
The event will begin at 5:30 pm with an opportunity to visit with candidates in the Bettendorf High School Commons. The forum will begin at 6:30 pm in the Bettendorf High School Performing Arts Center. Candidates will start by introducing themselves and explaining why they would like to serve on the Bettendorf Board of Education. Then they will answer questions presented by a moderator, Matt Christensen, Executive Editor, Quad-City Times. Candidates will have an opportunity to share additional thoughts at the end of the forum.
