League accepting candidate questions from the public for forums

Posted

The League of Women Voters-Jefferson County is seeking questions from the public for the league’s upcoming Candidates Forums in July. 

Three forums are in the works.

The first, on Monday, July 11, will feature the two candidates for Jefferson County sheriff: Art Frank and Joe Nole. 

The next forum on Tuesday, July 12, will have five of the six primary candidates for the two state representative seats from Washington’s 24th Legislative District: Mike Chapman and Matthew Rainwater for Position 1; and Darren Corcoran, Brian Pruiett, and Steve Tharinger for Position 2. 

Position 1 candidate Sue Forde is unable to attend due to a prior commitment, according to the league.

The final forum of the primary season is set for Wednesday, July 13. The league will host the three candidates for the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners’ District 3 position: Greg Brotherton, Jon Cooke, and Marcia Kelbon. 

All forums will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Questions from the public for the candidates should be submitted to lwvjeffcowa@gmail.com no later than noon Friday, July 8. 

Concise, unbiased questions directly related to the candidates’ positions and policies will be given priority, and similar questions will be combined. The League of Women Voters-Jefferson County noted that it wants to make sure questions reflect a wide range of concerns from the county’s multiple constituencies.

Links to the primary forums, which can be accessed by computer, tablet, or phone, will be posted on the league’s website at lwvwa.org/Jefferson/ on Friday, July 1.

The league noted that  KPTZ 91.9 FM will simulcast the forums and livestream them at kptz.org. The forums will be recorded, edited solely for brevity, and eventually linked on the league’s website.

For more information, contact the league at
lwvjeffcowa@gmail.com.
