Voters' forum: Make yours an informed vote

The League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island, in keeping with our goal of educating and encouraging voters, is co-sponsoring a Primary Candidates Forum with the Oak Harbor Senior Center on Sept. 4 at 7 p.m.

Candidates for 2nd District Congressional Representative include: Bruce Guthrie [L], Rick Larsen [D], Bern Haggerty [G], Herb Meyer [R], Warren Hanson [R], Norma Smith [R]. Candidates fot Island County treasurer include: Marty Mathews [R], Linda Riffe [D], Maxine Sauter [R]. Issues: Whidbey Island Hospital District, Emergency Medical Care Levy.

All candidates for 2nd Congressional District Representative and for Island County treasurer have been invited to speak, answer questions and pass out Campaign literature. These races are most important now because the primary election results will eliminate some of the candidates. Whidbey Hospital CEO Scott Rhine will present information and answer questions about the Emergency Medical Care Levy.

The League of Women Voters sponsors an election Web site for information on Congressional and State representatives at www.washingtonvoter.org. No ads, no bias, just info.This site also provides links to candidate sites.

The league is also sponsoring an all candidates night Thursday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. at Oak Harbor School District Administration Building and an issues forum Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. at Oak Harbor School District Administration Building.

Mark your calendars now and be an informed voter.

Emily Ramsey,

League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island
