The Alliance of Citizens for Edmonds (ACE) (www.aceedmonds.org) and the Edmonds Senior Center (www.edmondssc.org) are again jointly sponsoring a candidate forum featuring the City of Edmonds mayor and city council positions. ACE is an organization of citizens committed to protecting the small town character of Edmonds.
The forum will take place on Monday, Oct. 19, 2015, from 5:30- 8 p.m.
Participants will be:
Mayor – Dave Earling (incumbent, unopposed)
Position 2 – Michael Nelson (appointed incumbent) v. Alvin Rutledge
Position 5 – David Teitzel v. Alicia Crank
Position 6 – Thomas Mesaros (appointed incumbent, unopposed)
Position 7 – Lora Petso (incumbent) v. Neil Tibbott
The forum will be held on the ground floor of the Edmonds Senior Center, located at 220 Railroad Ave. on the Edmonds waterfront. Light hor d’oeuvres and soda, water and coffee will be available. Arrive between 5:30-6 p.m.; the forum will begin promptly at 6 p.m. A moderator will ask questions of each position, and the contested positions will also have an opportunity to ask their opponent a question, and rebut the opponent’s answer.
My Edmonds News will videotape the forum for those who can’t attend.
