LWV Lincoln Candidate Forum
Candidates for Lincoln County Commissioner, Positions #1 & #3
The League of Women Voters (LWV) of Lincoln County will host a virtual forum featuring the candidates for the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners, Positions 1 and 3, on Thursday, April 14. The event is open to the public. Information on how to join this webinar event can be found on the league’s website: www.lwvlincolncounty.org.
The five candidates vying for Position #1 include: Walter Chuck, Greg Holland, Carter McEntee, Casey Miller, and Mitch Parsons. This group will be featured during the first hour, from 6:30-7:30 pm.
During the second hour, from 7:30-8:30 pm, candidates for Position #3 will take the stage. They include Kaety Jacobson, Randy Mallette, Ryan Parker, and Mark Watkins. After introductions, the candidates in each group will respond to a set of prepared questions from the moderator, Jean Cowan. Questions will not be solicited from the viewing audience.
Statewide, the May 17 Primary Election will present voters with a wide array of important contests. The local LWV decided to focus on County Commission races because the winner or winners could, potentially, be determined during this election cycle. Because Lincoln County Commissioner is a non-partisan position, if any candidate gets more than 50% of the vote in May, they will win outright; otherwise, the two top vote getters will face a November runoff. After April 14 the event will be posted on the LWV website and You Tube. It will also be covered by local radio stations, including KYAQ 97.1 FM public radio and through Yaquina Bay Communications.
