Catch the candidates: Council forums

The August primary ballots go in the mail this week, and they're due back in the mail by Aug. 18.

For those of you still wondering about which Spokane City Council candidate deserves your vote, there are a couple chances coming up to see them up close and personal.

Wednesday 7 p.m.: Spokane Campaign for Liberty, which is an outgrowth of the Tea Party movement, will have candidates from all three districts at Central United Methodist Church, 3rd and Howard. They say they  have 11 of the 14 possible candidates, including the first face-off between Amber Waldref and Mike Fagan for the northeast Spokane District 1 seat.

Aug. 5, 6:30 p.m. East Central Community Center will host a forum for south Spokane's District 2 candidates in the Senior Room at 500 S. Stone. They say they have commitments from all five in the race.
