Earlier today McMinnville’s incumbent Mayor, Scott Hill and challenger, Heidi Parker met for a discussion and Q&A at the American Legion in McMinnville.

The position of Mayor of McMinnville is an unpaid volunteer position which is historically a non-partisan position. You would be forgiven for thinking otherwise this year even though both candidates are registered Republicans. The discussion was amiable but not particularly in depth.

After a brief introductory statement from each candidate, predetermined questions were asked by the moderator before a couple of questions were taken from the room. Those questions were proffered by Yamhill County Commissioner-elect Lindsay Berschauer and Chris Chenoweth, who is running for Mac City Council in Ward 1.

Many thanks to the Yamhill County Republican Women’s group for hosting this event and making sure to stream it on Facebook live.
