Discussion with Central Kitsap School District Director 5 Candidates

Tuesday, the Kitsap Sun hosted Central Kitsap School board candidates Eric Greene, Richard Romero, and Jim Zimny for a discussion in the run-up to the Aug. 18 primary.

As mentioned in a previous post, the discussion included questions from Caucus readers and was led by Editor David Nelson.

We ran into some technical problems so about 10 to 15 minutes of the discussion was lost from our recording. The first video includes candidates’ introductions, before we ran into difficulties. The second video includes a majority of the questions and discussion.

CK School Board Interview: Looking for Questions

Tomorrow we’ll cap off the editorial board interviews for the primary with the three candidates for Central Kitsap School District Director 5. Starts at 5 p.m.

This is the race we’re not endorsing a candidate in, and the editorial board won’t be involved in the interview. That’s because one of the candidates, Richard Romero, was a community member of the board until deciding to run. We asked him to resign, and thought a conflict might be perceived if his former board members were questioning him.

I’ll conduct the interview with the three — the other two running are incumbent Eric Greene and Jim Zimny — which we want to do for our readers and to give the candidates a chance to debate one another. I’m soliciting questions from readers to use so the community can dictate the questioning. Please leave them in the comments below or email me at dnelson@kitsapsun.com.

We’ll begin around 5 p.m. tomorrow, watch it live here.

As usual we’ll archive the interview here on the Caucus, and accept questions from readers during the broadcast.
