League of Women Voters sets forums

Two online public events offered before Nov. 3 general election

The League of Women Voters of Clallam County is offering a pair of upcoming online public forums in advance of the Nov. 3 general election.

At 2 p.m. Sunday, an online Zoom forum features State Sen. Kevin Van De Wege of Sequim, the Democratic incumbent, against challenger Connie Beauvais of Port Angeles, a Republican.

At 7 p.m. Oct. 13, the league hosts an online Zoom forum detailing the amendments to the Clallam County Charter. Charter Review Commission members will represent views supporting and in opposition to the amendments.

Links for these forums are on the League of Women Voters’ website at lwvcla.org.

Questions from audience members are the centerpiece of League forums, and audience members are encouraged to submit questions for the candidates and speakers, league representatives say.

Questions for the state Senator forum must be submitted to [email protected] no later than 5 p.m. Saturday; put “State Senate” in the subject line, and include one’s full name.

Questions for the Charter Review Amendments forum must be submitted to [email protected] no later than 5 p.m. Oct. 12; put “Charter Review” in the subject line, and include one’s full name.

Complete instructions for attending both forums and submitting questions can be found on the League’s website at lwvcla.org.

Both online forums will be recorded. Links to the recordings will be available within a few days at the league’s website.

Challengers to 24th Legislative District incumbents Mike Chapman (D-Port Angeles) and Steve Tharinger (D-Port Townsend) — respectively, Sue Forde (R-Sequim) and Brian Pruiett (R-Carlsborg) — declined invitations for forums, league representatives said.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan organization whose purpose is “to promote the informed and active participation of citizens in government.”
