Holy Spirit Lutheran Church to host Kirkland Council candidate forum Oct. 14
Holy Spirit Lutheran Church will host its sixth annual Kirkland Council candidate forum at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14 at the church, located at 10021 NE 124th St. in Kirkland’s Juanita neighborhood.
The event is open to the public.
All candidates for the Kirkland City Council have been invited and will be attending.
The forum is expected to last approximately 90 minutes.
Candidates will be asked to answer questions during three different stages. The first stage will include questions prepared by the advocacy team of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, the group responsible for organizing the forum.
The second stage will be a lightning round where candidates will be asked to answer 10 “yes” or “no” questions.
The third stage will be questions that audience members wrote on note cards that the moderator will read.
In past years, the church’s advocacy team has organized forums for the Kirkland City Council, as well as candidates for the 45th Legislative District and have also hosted then-Congressman Jay Inslee for a discussion about environmental policy.
The advocacy team of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church was created to educate, encourage and enable church and community members to advocate their point of view to government leaders and elected officials.
Childcare will be provided.
