On Monday, October 1, 2018, Northshore Council PTSA sponsored a Candidates Forum featuring candidates vying for state legislative positions in the 1st, 45th and 46th districts.
Candidates introduced themselves and then the forum began with questions that were solicited from the community and pre-selected in advance. All candidates were asked the same question, but the order was evenly rotated so that candidates took turns being the first to answer a question. Each candidate was allowed one minute to respond. Then there was a "lightning round" wherein each candidate was allowed 20 seconds to respond to each question. The evening ended with questions from the forum audience.
Many thanks to the 14 candidates who participated in the forum, including Derek Stanford, Debra Blodgett, Shelley Kloba, Manka Dhingra, Dale Fonk, Michael Curtis, Roger Goodman, Amber Krabach, Larry Springer, Beth Daranciang, David Frockt, Gerry Pollet, and Javier Valdez, as well as to the community members who made time to attend the event.
For those who were unable to attend in person, we are excited to be able to offer a recording of the event:
