Candidate forum hosted at Holmen Area Fire Department

Local candidates had the chance to discuss their thoughts Tuesday evening about a local fire department.

The Holmen Area Fire Department hosted its first Community Candidate Night.

The forum will include candidates in the spring election for the towns of Holmen and Onalaska, as well as the village of Holmen.

Fire department officials hope the night keeps the departments focus in line with the community’s vision.

“We have to be involved and educated voters so that we put the proper people in our communities to lead our communities as we go forward for the next ten, fifteen, twenty years,” said Holmen Area Fire Department Chief William ‘Buck’ Manley.

The forum was held at the Holmen Area Fire Department.
