Democratic candidates robust Yelm Forum last night

Democratic candidates up for election held a Town Hall Forum last night in Yelm.

Candidates for LD 2 State Representative were:
– Greg Hartman
– Bruce Lachney

Thurston County Commissioner candidate up for re-election:
– Sandra Romero

About 100 persons from a broad cross-section of Yelm-area residents attended the event at Yelm’s Triad Theater. The 2-hour session was moderated by Dave Peeler, with a thirty year tenure of environmental experience at the Dept. of Ecology. Each candidate gave an opening statement with their vision, followed by an audience Q & A. Questions ranged from budgets, revenue, economic development, gay rights, worker’s rights, health-care and many more. The event began at 7pm and ended at 9pm.

Editor’s Note:
Nice to see that someone from Yelm’s City Hall showed-up for this wonderful evening in the local democratic process. Yelm City Council member JW Foster was in-audience, a refreshing change because t’is rare that one from the town’s council attends these functions. Why Yelm’s mayor for 7 years has NEVER conducted nor participated in a Town Hall Forum for his constituents, to date.
