LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - An EMS crew from Carnegie is in Louisiana this morning to help with Ida relief efforts. Crew members were put on lock-down as the storm hit

the mainland. While they’re there to help them recover from the storm, there’s still the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic as well.

Today, Young Professionals of Lawton will be holding a Virtual Candidate Forum, ahead of the city election just a few weeks away.

Today’s August 30th forum will run from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., and you’ll need to register online through EventBrite. It will include all three candidates for mayor, as well as

all five candidates running for Lawton’s Ward Two. You can find more information, including how to register, by visiting the Young Professionals of Lawton on Facebook.
