WTIP to host county commissioner candidate forum Sept. 20

Election Day is Nov. 6, and there are two contested seats this year to serve on the Cook County Board of Commissioners.

Prior to the election, WTIP will hold a live debate with the remaining four candidates to fill the two contested seats on the county board.

Join WTIP staff from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, for a candidate forum with the four remaining candidates, two from both District 3 and District 5 right here in Cook County. All the candidates have agreed to participate…so if you’re undecided, this will be your opportunity to hear from the candidates directly.

If you have concerns about county government, participate in these forums by calling in before, or during the broadcast which airs live from 7-8 p.m. The phone number for WTIP is (218) 387-1070. Or you can email Joe Friedrichs at or Rhonda Silence at with your questions for the candidates and WTIP will try their best to include them in the forum.

Thanks for helping WTIP North Shore Community Radio make your Cook County concerns known. And be sure to tune in at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20 for the final 2018 Cook County Commissioner forum.
