Keizertimes recently spoke with the candidates for Position 3 on the Keizer City Council, Kyle Juran and Michele Roland-Schwartz. The winner of the race this November will replace outgoing Councilor Marlene Parsons. The discussion spans issues from the city budget to growth, a library and recent discussions on equity and inclusivity.

It's long, but we hope it helps you make the best decision for you as ballots begin arriving in a few weeks.
