The first forum will be from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the commons area of Menomonie Middle School, 920 21st St. S.E. For this forum, all questions must be submitted in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org or handed to the moderator the evening of the event. All questions will be anonymous.
The second forum is from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8, at The Duke & Dagger, 120 Sixth Ave W., Menomonie.
