Got questions about a particular candidate or race in the Valley? Tonight's the night.
Central Valley High School Advanced Placement Government class is hosting a debate and forum for the 4th Legislative District Senate race, Valley City Council, Liberty Lake City Council Position 5 and Liberty Lake Mayor.
The students get to ask the questions, but don't let that deter you. In the years of watching a similar debate by the Spokane Youth Commission, it has become clear that Art Linkletter had it wrong. Kids don't say the darnedest things; they ask some of the toughest questions.
It starts at 5 p.m. at the CVHS theater.
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.
The Constitution Party is sponsoring a candidate forum for Spokane County commissioner candidates Thursday evening in the Spokane Valley.
The party doesn’t actually have a candidate in this race, which features four Republicans and a Democratic incumbent Bonnie Mager. They’ve invited all five, and as of last week they had committments from three Republicans: Al French, Jeff Holy and Steve Salvatori. Organizer Christine Snow said they were still trying to contact David Elton.
Forum is open to the public. Starts at 6:30 p.m. at New Life Church, 10920 East Sprague, and is scheduled to go about two hours.
Republicans of Spokane County are bringing the two GOP assessor candidates together for a question-and-answer session Monday evening in the Valley.
Incumbent Ralph Baker and challenger Vicki Horton will appear at the club’s meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Quality Inn, Mission and Argonne. The club uses the sessions to help it decide endorsements, but the forum is open to the public.
Some readers might wonder why the groupe doesn’t have all the candidates in the primary there, considering the race also has two Democrats and two independents. Explanation is in the first name of the organization. If you want to see the field, check out the League of Women Voters forum, being replayed regularly on Cable Channel 5.
