On Monday evening, I will be answering questions from the community with the other three candidates for North Kitsap School Board. League of Women Voters is conducting a candidate forum on Monday, October 9th at 6:30 at the Poulsbo City Council Chambers. Two positions will be determined election and all North Kitsap voters can vote on one candidate for each position. We are lucky to have two candidates for each position, which gives a choice to voters and advances the understanding of what is important to our community.
The League of Women Voters is giving us the opportunity to meet our three candidates in the primary for North Kitsap School Board. Our candidates for District 4 are Scott Henden, Glen Robbins, and Loretta Byrnes. Following the August 4th primary, only two with the highest votes will be on the ballot in November. I encourage everyone to attend. All candidates will respond to questions from a moderator that are generated from the audience. It’s an opportunity to see the candidates in action.
Tuesday, July 21st
6:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Poulsbo City Hall
The League of Women Voters and co-sponsors, the NAACP and the Kitsap Historical Society are hosting a Poulsbo City Council and North Kitsap School Board forums on Monday, October 7th at 6:00pm. The event will take place in the meeting room at Poulsbo City Hall. The forum will be divided into two sessions with city council and mayoralty candidates from 6 to 7pm and School Board candidates from 7:15 to 8:15.
Usually in such forums, candidates are given two minutes to make an opening statement. After all candidates have spoken, the moderator asks questions submitted in written form by the audience. All candidates will have an opportunity to respond to each question. Before the final statements, the moderator may allow candidates an extra minute to respond to another’s comments or to elaborate on an issue. At the end of the forum, each candidate will have two minutes to make a closing statement. The forum will be taped and aired by BKAT in its entirety.
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization and does not support or oppose candidates. By organizing forums, the League seeks to encourage Americans to become informed voters and active citizens.
I’ll be participating in a candidates forum hosted by the League of Women Voters on July 16 at Poulsbo City Hall at 6:30. Come ask questions and listen.
