The Grand Mound-Rochester Citizens Group plans a candidate forum Saturday night at Swede Hall in Rochester. The two-hour forum starts at 5:45 p.m. and six candidates.
Both Thurston County sheriff hopefuls – Independent John Snaza and Democrat Deborah Mealy -- have confirmed, said organizer Marty Paterson.
Also scheduled to talk are Republican Glen Morgan running for assessor, Republican Kim Wyman running for auditor, Republican Tom Nelson running for treasurer and Republican Pat Beehler running for county commissioner. House Republican Leader Richard DeBolt of Chehalis also might speak.
The event is preceded by a spaghetti dinner fundraiser from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. It costs $6 and candidates are to start speaking around 6. Swede Hall, owned by the citizens group, is at 18543 Albany St. S.W. in Rochester.
