Baker voters ask candidates questions during forum

BAKER, LA (WAFB) - Voters in Baker participated in a candidate forum Thursday night.

They will be selecting school board members, judges and other officials next month. The forum does not control what is asked or said.

"If you just try to judge from a soundbite or from some campaign poster, you don't really get to know the candidates; you don't get a feeling for them," said Edgar Cage, moderator of the forum. "But when you can interact, as you can at the tables here tonight, then you can get to know the candidates on a more personal, intimate basis."

Candidates presented their qualifications and then had to answer questions from the audience.

The Baker Municipal Center served as the location for the no-holds barred, get to know you forum.
