Richmond Beach Community Association's Candidates Forum
Tuesday, October 10, 7:00pm
Ricmond Beach Congregational Church

All the candidates for Shoreline political offices have been invited to the Richmond Beach Community Association's annual Candidates Forum. This is in the place of the October public meeting -- Tuesday, October 10 -- but starting at 7:00pm.

The Candidates Forum puts the office seekers before the public so they can personally make their pitches, and the audience has the opportunity to put questions to the politicians in a moderated Q / A session. In addition, there is informal time where people can interact with the candidates one on one.

With four city council positions, two school board races, Ronald Wastewater and two fire commissioner positions, it will be a full evening.

The RBCA has decided to concentrate on the local races; there are other forums in the area that concentrate on county positions such as Executive and Sheriff. However, the political parties and spokespeople for those other offices and advocates for ballot measures are welcome to be on site and mingle during the informal meet and greet.

Those running unopposed, which include Councilman Will Hall, current Mayor Chris Roberts, Ronald Wastewater’s Bob Ransom and Shoreline Fire Commissioners Jon Kennison and David Harris, will have the opportunity to share their views and discuss their plans.

Vying for Shoreline School Board are Heather Fralick and Jill Brady (open Position 2) and incumbent David Wilson and Steven J. Pollack (Position 3).

The contested city council seats pit Susan Chang against Carolyn Ahlgreen for Position 5 and Keith McGlashan and Jin-Ah Kim for Position 1.

The Board of Commissioners for Ronald Wastewater sees a tussle between Wes Brandon, currently finishing the term of the late Arne Lind, and challenger Paul Barrera.

The forum will be held in the basement of the Richmond Beach Congregational Church, located at the corner of Richmond Beach Road and 15th Avenue NW.
