Last month’s Grassroots article “Be Part Of The Excitement” neglected to mention some of our endorsed candidates. Roxanne Murphy is running for the Bellingham City Council At Large position, Gene Knutson is running for Bellingham City Council Ward 2 and Michael Lilliquist is running for Bellingham City Council in Ward 6. Please support these fine candidates!

While the opponents are trying to dodge the voters, our candidates want more face time! This year we are rolling out FLASH FORUMS. All we need is a level driveway, a lawn, or even a street corner, where we will gather neighbors to talk with the candidates for 45 minutes. This is a great opportunity for candidates to have an extended conversation with voters about the issues that really matter to them, from Lake Whatcom to the jail to economic development. We just can't get that with one-minute Q and A at structured forums.
