League of Women Voters sets forums for Oct. 4, Oct. 13

The League of Women Voters of Clallam County has set two online public forums

With the 2020 general election less than five weeks away, the League of Women Voters of Clallam County is offering a pair of upcoming online public forums.

At 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 4, an online Zoom forum features State Sen. Kevin Van De Wege (D-Sequim), the incumbent, against challenger Connie Beauvais (R-Port Angeles).

At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 13, the league hosts an online Zoom forum detailing the amendments to the Clallam County Charter. Charter Review Commission members will represent views supporting and in opposition to the amendments.

Links for these forums are on the League of Women Voters’ website at www.lwvcla.org.

Questions from audience members are the centerpiece of League forums, and audience members are encouraged to submit questions for the candidates and speakers, league representatives say.

Questions for the State Senator forum must be submitted to info@lwvcla.org no later than 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3; put “State Senate” in the subject line, and include one’s full name.

Questions for the Charter Review Amendments forum must be submitted to info@lwcla.org no later than 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 12; put “Charter Review” in the subject line, and include one’s full name.

Complete instructions for attending both forums and submitting questions can be found on the League’s website at www.lwvcla.org.

Both online forums will be recorded. Links to the recordings will be available within a few days at the league’s website.

Challengers to 24th Legislative District incumbents Mike Chapman (D-Port Angeles) and Steve Tharinger (D-Port Townsend) — respectively, Sue Forde (R-Sequim) and Brian Pruiett (R-Carlsborg) — declined invitations for forums, league representatives said.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan organization whose purpose is “to promote the informed and active participation of citizens in government.”
