The two forums will be conducted via video conferencing and will be live-streamed
The League of Women Voters of Clark County will host candidate forums for four primary races in early July.
The League will host candidates for the 18th Legislative District Senate race in a forum on Wed., July 8, as well as candidates for the Clark County Councilor District 3 position. In the Senate race, incumbent Ann Rivers (Republican) will be joined by challengers Rick Bell (Democrat) and John Ley (R). In the race for County council, incumbent John Blom, who states no party preference; will be joined by challengers Karen Dill Bowerman (R) and Jesse James (D).
On Thu., July 9, candidates for the state Legislative District 49 Representative Positions 1 and 2 will be held. For Position 1, invited are incumbent Sharon Wylie (D); and challengers Kelli Danielle Fiskum (I) and Justin Forsman (R). Invited for the position 2 race are incumbent Monica Stonier (D); and challengers Park Llafet (R) and Troy Potter (I).
The previously announced July 1 forum for candidates for the U.S. Congressional District 3 will not take place due to an insufficient number of candidates willing to participate in the format offered.
The two forums will be conducted via video conferencing and will be live-streamed on the League Facebook account (www.facebook.com/LWVClarkCounty) and broadcast live over Clark/Vancouver Television (www.cvtv.org).
All the forums will start at 6:30 p.m. Forums will also be available for viewing through CVTV after the live meetings.
The nonpartisan League of Women Voters, which nationally celebrates its centennial this year, strives to empower voters and defend democracy through education and advocacy.
The League of Women Voters intends to host forums in advance of the Nov. 3 General Election as well.
