Whatcom County Council and Port Commission elections are coming! These races impact the entire county. On behalf of 10 non-partisan organizations, we cordially invite the public to meet and hear the candidates at the:

2017 Whatcom County-wide Candidate Forum
Thursday, October 5th, 7:00 to 9:30pm
(Doors open at 6:30)
Meridian High School Auditorium
194 W Laurel Rd, Bellingham, WA 98226

The event will be broadcast live on KGMI Radio AM 790.
Mike Kent, Host of KGMI’s Radio Real Estate, will moderate.

The November 2017 election will significantly influence Whatcom’s future. Farms, jobs, property values, taxes, development, environmental regulation, affordable housing, and the Hirst decision are just a few important issues facing our citizens. Candidates will be asked specific questions on local concerns.

Proud sponsors are: Whatcom County Association of Realtors, Whatcom Farm Bureau, Whatcom County Cattleman’s Association, Whatcom Family Farmers, Association of General Contractors, Building Industry Association of Whatcom County, Common Threads Northwest, Whatcom Business Alliance, Citizens’ Alliance for Property Rights, and The 4th Corner.

These organizations represent many Whatcom County voters and businesses. We expect a high turn-out in the most important forum this local election cycle.

The organizers are committed to a professional, non-partisan, respectful, positive educational event for all candidates and participants.

Let’s participate, inform and encourage educated voters to better our community!
