Altoona City Council candidates participate in forum


Altoona (WQOW) - The spring election is three weeks away and tonight Altoona's City Council candidates had the chance to share their views with voters.

A forum was held at City Hall. In district one incumbent Dale Stuber faces Timothy Raap and in district three incumbent Andy Schlafer faces Tom Meyer.

Tuesday, the candidates had the chance to tell voters how they would handle Altoona's continued growth and shared some of the issues citizens have brought to their attention.

"As I go door to door the first thing that comes up is 'what's going on in Hillcrest and what's going on in River Prairie?' That's usually followed up with a finger-pointing right at me saying 'don't screw it up,'" Schlafer said.

At least for the people I've talked their biggest ones are keeping their taxes down and maintaining the fine services they have," said Meyer.

About 25 people attended the forum.
