REMINDER: 32nd District candidates, Superior-Court candidates at Tuesday Richmond Beach forum

Tuesday is the primary-election candidates’ forum at the Richmond Beach Congregational Church.

Five candidates for two 32nd District legislative positions and six candidates for three King-County-Superior-Court positions will appear at the forum.

The forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the church at the corner of Northwest Richmond Beach Road and 15th Avenue Northwest. It is in Pilgrim Hall in the basement of the Church.

One set of legislative candidates is incumbent Democratic 32nd District State Rep. Ruth Kagi of Shoreline and her two Republican opponents, Eric Alvey of Seattle and Robert Reedy of Mountlake Terrace. The other is incumbent 32nd District State Rep. Cindy Ryu of Shoreline and her one Republican opponent, Randy Hayden of Edmonds. In each case, the top two vote getters in the Aug. 7 primary advance to the Nov. 6 general election.

With redistricting, the District still includes Shoreline. Woodway, south Edmonds and nearby unincorporated areas of southwest Snohomish County but no longer includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore or the north outskirts of Kirkland, but instead includes Lynnwood, part of Mountlake Terrace and part of northwest Seattle.

One of the Superior Court contests matches attorney Hong Tran and Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Sean O'Donnell.

Another race matches incumbent Judge Doug North and Redmond City Councilwoman Kimberly Allen.

A third matches attorney Judy Ramseyer and Senior Deputy Prosecutor Gary Ernsdorff.

In all three, a candidate who gets a majority in the primary wins without running in the general election.
