The 10/9 Eastside Candidate Forum Has Been Canceled.
The Eastside Candidate Forum scheduled for Wednesday, October 9th at the Elks Lodge has been canceled. One of the Council candidates who was planning to attend the forum notified us that he has to be out-of-town that night. The Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (CNA) decided to cancel the Eastside forum due to the absence of that candidate and for a couple other reasons.
An alternative to the canceled forum is the Westside Candidate Forum being held at 7 p.m. on Thursday 10/17 at Garfield Elementary School. The Westside forum is also being organized by the CNA and will be open to people from the east and west sides of Olympia.
Garfield Elementary School is located at 325 Plymouth Street NW, just north of Harrison Avenue NW and Woodruff Park. All six Council candidates will be at the Westside Candidate Forum. Please attend it if you can.
