Since 2011, the business association has provided this service to the community. The local candidates for town board positions gather usually on the third Tuesday in October for a panel discussion regarding the issues facing the Town of Sand Lake. The questions are selected by the members of the association and are provided to the candidates in advance. The moderator is also a member of SLBA. The 2013 event was televised on channel 17 as well. We believe, as Thomas Jefferson stated, “The key to a successful democracy is a well educated electorate.” Watch for news of this popular event in 2017.
