Abby Burlingame, Republican candidate for Central Kitsap County
Commissioner, announced Friday that she will join the forum
scheduled to tape Monday, Aug. 2, at the BKAT studio.
Burlingame had indicated earlier she would not attend but said in an e-mail on Friday that she was canceling a Monday fundraiser in order to attend.
“I am the only woman running and I think that is a needed perspective during this televised forum,” Burlingame wrote in an e-mail to forum organizer Ann Smith. “I hope this is not a problem and I will see you Monday evening.”
Burlingame is one of three candidates challenging incumbent Commissioner Josh Brown, a Democrat, for the position.
The other two are David Corley, a Republican, and Wally Carlson, a Conservative Democrat.
If you have questions for any of the candidates, please post them as comments on this blog by Sunday night (Aug. 1).
The forum will not be open to the public because of space limitations but will be televised later. Air dates are as follows:
Aug. 5: 8 p.m.
Aug. 7: 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Aug. 9: Noon
Aug. 12: 10 a.m.
