The Riverside Neighborhood Council has a candidate forum at 5 p.m. Oct. 27 at the downtown Spokane Library that will feature Democratic congressional candidate Daryl Romeyn, 3rd District legislative candidates Timm Ormsby, Morgan Oyler and Andy Billig, and county commissioner candidates Bonnie Mager and Al French.
Organizer Gary Pollard said they invited the other candidates in those races but were turned down. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers' campaign said no just this week because of a scheduling conflict, he said.
Oct. 27 is fairly late, considering ballots went out last week, Pollard agreed. But that was when they could book the room and get the largest number of candidates to show, he said.
