Let Campaign Season CommenceJune 24th, 2009 by David Nelson
David Nelson here, subbing for the vacationing Mr. Gardner. I’m sure he’d want you all to see the just-announced Eggs & Issues schedule, put on again this campaign season by the Bremerton Area Chamber of Commerce.
Before I do that, a quick plug for our own editorial board meeting coming tonight. We’re interviewing candidates for the Port of Bremerton Comission seat held now by Cheryl Kincer, and we’ll broadcast the interview live on the website. Go to the homepage — www.kitsapsun.com — around 5:15 to watch and submit your own questions. After the meeting we’ll archive the video here on the Caucus, if you can’t watch tonight. Candidates from a different race will be in front of our board almost every Wednesday through July, and we’ll post a reminder of those here as they are scheduled.
Now then, the Eggs & Issues lineup:
July 7 – Bremerton Mayor: Daryl Daugs, Carlos Jara, Patty Lent, Will Maupin and Mike Shepherd
July 14 – Bremerton City Council District #7: Carol Arends and Gentry Lange
July 21 – Port of Bremerton Commissioner, District #1: Gene Hart, Lynn Horton and Roger Zabinski
July 28 – Bremerton School District, Position #1: Cynthia Large, Christianne Martin, Scott Rahm and J. David Rubie
August 4 – Bremerton School District, Position #4: David Boynton, Cynthia Galloway and Bruce Woolnough
August 11 – Bremerton School District, Position #5: Ruben Garcia, Carolynn Perkins and Kent Watkins
As usual, the forums are held at 7:30 a.m. at the Cloverleaf Bar and Grill in East Bremerton (1240 Hollis Street), and a no-host breakfast is available. After last year’s hubub over whether videotaping by the public is allowed, the Chamber requests that anyone looking to record a forum be approved in advance. Contact them at (360) 479-3579.
