Forum Will Address Ballot Issues

You’ve probably received your ballot by now. Maybe you’re wondering how to vote on the two statewide ballot measures: Initiative 1033 and Referendum 71.
If you would like to learn more about these issues, plan to attend the League of Women Voters of Kitsap’s Ballot Issues Forum on Wednesday, Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to noon.
The event will be at the Eagles Nest, 1200 NW Fairgrounds Road, near the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.
Speaking in favor of R-71 will be the Rev. Elizabeth Stevens of the Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Speaking against will be Robert Struble of the Knights of Columbus.
Speaking in favor of I-1033 will be former Kitsap County Commissioner Matt Ryan. Speaking against will be a speaker from the No On 1033 group.
The speakers will discuss the issues and answer questions. The forum is open to the public, so come and bring your questions on these important ballot measures.
For information on the forum call Ann Smith at 360-871-3993.
