In Common Voices, Local Government, News, Wake Up Whatcom by commonnw


Were you wondering what questions would be asked at a candidate forum? Why would you want to attend a political candidate forum? They’re all an echo chamber saying the same thing, aren’t they?

Answer? No. The questions that were created for the 2018 Whatcom County-wide forum (and for the Skagit County-wide forum) were submitted by local groups who are interested in how these candidates will lead if elected to local office on import issues that relate to the rights of property.
