Lake Forest Park City Council Candidate Forum, Oct 1, 2013

The Seattle League of Women Voters is hosting a candidate forum at Third Place Commons on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, 7 to 9pm for the City of Lake Forest Park City Council positions.

Each candidate will make an opening statement. After the opening statements there will be a half hour of questions and answers for each of the positions. The League of Women Voters will moderate the forum.

There are four council positions in this election. The open seats are number 1, 5 and 7; Councilmember John Wright is running unopposed for re-election. Three incumbent Lake Forest Park councilmembers are retiring this year: Sandy Koppenol, Don Fiene and Robert Lee.

Candidates for the Lake Forest Park City Council positions are:

Position 1
Jason Colberg
Hilda Thompson

Position 3
John Wright

Position 5
Edgar Escandar
Mark Phillips

Position 7
Alan Kiest
John Resha

The general election is on November 5; ballots will be mailed in the middle of October. The forum is one way to help voters become informed on the issues facing Lake Forest Park and get to know the candidates running for City Council.

Candidate statements published in the Shoreline Area News can be found from the webpage. Under the Features section in the first column, look for "candidates".
