2017/2018 Candidate Interviews

KXRO is a strong supporter of the election process. We have stated multiple times that we welcome any candidate, no matter how large the office.

From County Commissioner to Cemetery Board, we feel that the pubrlic deserves to learn about every candidate. Who they you are, why they ran, and what they can bring to the position.

KXRO has extended an invitation to any and all candidate to come on to the KXRO Morning Show for a live interview as a free way to promote their candidacy.
te
This interview will be an overall introduction to you as a candidate, and will not delve into deeper issues at this time.

Following the August Primary, we will extend another invitation for a more in-depth interview regarding specific issues that may be facing your specific area.

As these interviews occur, we will post them here from residents to learn about their candidates.
