They already have, but here’s my point. Plenty of opportunity is coming up for you to learn more about candidates and ask questions. Check this out!
The Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce and the Bremerton Area Chamber of Commerce will be Co-Hosting the Kitsap County Commissioner, Position No. 3 Candidate Forum. The Candidate Forum will be held on Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at 7:45 a.m. at Port Orchard City Hall in the Council Chambers, 216 Prospect Street. City Hall doors will open at 7:30 a.m. and coffee/tea/water and muffins will be provided. We hope you will be able to join us to meet the candidates: Josh Brown (incumbent); Abby Burlingame; David Corley; and Wally Carlson. The Candidate Forum is open to the public ~ free of charge.
This is just one such example of a chance to hear in person from the people whose names you’re going to see on your ballot come November. I hope that this time around, I have plenty of opportunity to report to you on these forums. I hope that this time around, you have opportunity to see and hear the candidates yourself as well. Admittedly this is early and get this, you can’t eat or drink in the actual Port Orchard City Council chambers. It’s not the buffet table you’re coming for. You’re attending to hear from those who want to represent you.
