350 Oregon Central Coast and Citizens for a Better Lincoln County are sponsoring the Lincoln County Ecosystem Candidates’ forum at 6:00 pm, Tuesday, April 26th via Zoom. Chandler Davis will start off the event with his drum circle for 15 minutes to get the audience’s attention.
Twelve candidates have been confirmed for the forum. Lincoln County voters have been moved from US Congressional District 5 (currently held by Representative Kurt Schrader) to US Congressional District 4 (currently held by Representative Peter DeFazio who is retiring). Our candidates’ forum offers an excellent opportunity for Lincoln County residents to hear from six of the candidates vying for the Fourth District.
US Representative Fourth District – Andrew Kalloch, Corvallis School District Board member Sami Al-Abdrabbuh, Doyle E. Canning, BOLI Commissioner Val Hoyle, Jake Matthews, and G Tommy Smith. State Representative 10th District – State Representative Dave Gomberg.
Lincoln County Commissioner Position 1 – Waldport Mayor Greg Holland, Casey Miller, and Carter McEntee.
Lincoln County Commissioner Position 3 – County Commissioner Kaety Jacobson, and Newport City Councilor Ryan Parker.
The format consists of allowing each candidate to speak for five minutes about how they would address ecosystem issues for the position sought. The format is not set up as a debate. Audience members will be allowed to post written questions in the Chat section. Candidates who are not able to make the meeting will be allowed an opportunity to submit a three minute recorded video. The Zoom link for the candidates’ forum starting at 6:00 pm, Tuesday, April 26th is:
