Thurston County Chamber's Candidates Forum on Wednesday

All candidates vying for public office in Thurston County have been invited to attend the Chamber's Candidates Forum on Wednesday. The event begins at 11:30 a.m. at Saint Martin’s University's Norman Worthington Center.

Thurston County Commission District No. 3 candidates Pat Beehler and Karen Valenzuela will be featured, as well as Port of Olympia Commission District 3 candidates Dave Peeler and Jeff Davis.

After opening comments of two minutes each, candidates will be asked questions submitted in writing by those in attendance. Time does not allow for a debate format, so questions will be round-robin, with each candidate addressing different questions. At the end of the program, candidates will be allowed a two-minute summary statement.

The event includes lunch and is $20 for prepaid members, $25 for members at the door and $30 for all others. Reservations are requested at 360-357-3362 or online at www.thurstonchamber.com/events.
