A forum for Mehlville Fire Protection District Board of Directors candidates will take place at 7 p.m. today — March 24 — in the Lindbergh Schools Administration Building’s multipurpose room, 4900 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

Michael Klund is challenging incumbent Aaron Hilmer for a six-year seat in the April 5 election. A third candidate, R.L. Praprotnik, has withdrawn from the race and will support Hilmer. Praprotnik’s name will remain on the ballot.

The forum will be moderated by the League of Women Voters. Call News-papers is co-sponsoring the forum.
