The Press asked Councilman Dave Gallaher and Mayor Mark Stoner, who are running for Northwood mayor, questions to give voters a better understanding on where they stood on the issues facing the city. Here is what they had to say:

While voters in the Woodmore district focus on a bond issue that would leverage state funding for a new elementary school building, members of booster groups and Communities Achieving Goals for Extracurricular met recently with Craig Stough, an architect retained by the school board, to discuss plans for a new auditorium at the high school.

The proposed auditorium would be constructed if voters next month approve a 6.95-mill bond issue for the elementary school.

District 3 incumbent councilman Mike Craig says the difference between he and challenger Shaun Enright is that he is pro-business.

Enright says he is all about neighborhoods.

“I have a different view than Mike on what’s needed for East Toledo. Our plan isn’t just something we pulled out of our pocket. I really feel our approach is the right approach. My plans are legit — they are well thought out,” Enright said.

North Branch Nursery owner Tom Oberhouse and wife Laura Landry Meyer will showcase their renovated historic home in Pemberville for a fundraiser.

The treasurer of the Oregon City Schools District has projected a 3-percent drop in revenues over the next five years.

Treasurer Jane Fruth at a school board meeting last week gave an update in the district’s five-year forecast, which projects a drop in state foundation funding, property taxes, and electric deregulation funds.
