Catch the candidates: GOP assessor race

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. Listings are inside the blog.

They are part of a two-hour county candidates forum being replayed on CityCable 5 on:
