The League of Women Voters of Thurston County is holding candidate forums Saturday evening for candidates running in the Thurston County auditor and Port of Olympia commissioner races.
The event is in The Olympia Center’s multipurpose room and is to be filmed by Thurston Community Television, or TCTV, according to league spokeswoman Dawn Brooks Gibbs. The forum starts at 7:30 p.m. for auditor candidates – Gary Alexander, a Republican appointed to the office in January, and Democratic challenger Mary Hall.
The forum for port candidates Jeff Davis, the incumbent, and Sue Gunn, the challenger, is at 8:30 p.m. The port jobs are nonpartisan but Davis ran last year for the Legislature as a Democrat and Gunn for Congress as a Progressive Independent.
League president Allyson Brooks is serving as moderator. Candidates also will be given a chance to answer questions from the audience.
