Burlingame Will Be Part of TV Forum

July 30th, 2010 by lwvkitsap

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.
Aug. 14: 7 p.m.
Aug. 16: 11 a.m.

    How does a person contact the League of Women Voter’s blogger? It shouldn’t be too much in this day and age to expect a blogger in a local newspaper to provide contact information, should it? I mean, that would be part of the back and forth and give and take that is the nature of discussion. Anything less and it’s more of a soapbox, am I right?

    That would be me, Ann Strosnider. I see all the comments that go on the blog so you can contact me through the blog. I would prefer not to put my personal e-mail as a contact since this blog serves as the public face of the League rather than as a reflection of my personal opinions.
