"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men."

League of Women Voters Candidate Forum

The Grays Harbor League of Women Voters is sponsoring a Candidate Forum at the Bishop Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, September 6 and Friday, September 7, both at 7:00 p.m.  Republican candidates scheduled to participate include Allan Shores, Wes Cormier and Steve Gale (Friday),  and Rick Winsman (Thursday).  The Bishop Center is located on the Grays Harbor College campus at 1620 Edward P. Smith Drive, Aberdeen.

Forum will be co- moderated by Dr. Pat Smith, President, League of Women Voters of Grays Harbor and Dr. Ed Brewster, President, Grays Harbor College.

During the forum, each candidate will be allowed a two minute introductory statement, followed by three written questions from the audience, allowing for one minute answers, followed by a one minute summation.
The initial question in each contest will be offered by the League of Women Voters, and subsequent questions will be chosen from written questions offered by members of the audience.

Written questions from the audience will be chosen by League Members, and will have a direct correlation to issues that are specific to the Grays Harbor Community.  If time allows, additional audience questions will be offered.

Each candidate is allowed one stack of literature for display at the Forum.  The League asks that no candidate signs be displayed inside or around the Bishop Center before, during or after the forum, in accordance with League of Women Voters Standards and Practices and Washington State RCWs.

The Candidate Forum will be filmed by North Beach Community TV and Eagle TV and will be broadcast in active rotation on Channel 68 in the North Beach, and Channel 23 throughout greater Grays Harbor until the evening before the election.  This event is sponsored by The League of Women Voters of Grays Harbor, North Beach Community TV, Eagle TV, and Grays Harbor College.
