The Dexter Forum has been in existence since 2015. They meet on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 8:30 to 9:30 AM at the Dexter Wellness Center (currently via Zoom). Their purpose is to provide a positive environment for any interested citizen to “Listen and Learn” about current events. The Forum is organized by former Judge Karl Fink and former State Representative John Hansen – a pair of individuals known to approach solutions from different perspectives. Their meeting agenda is typically determined by those present and they also invite candidates to step up on the “Stump” to deliver persuasive campaign speeches. As a group, they take no positions on issues or candidates; they encourage understanding and discourage argument.
