Event Description

We regret to announce that we are canceling the County Council Candidate forum on growth and the environment, scheduled for August 1. Our goal with this event was to provide an opportunity for all of the candidates to have an open dialogue about key growth and environmental issues. Because we could not attract the majority of candidates, we have decided to cancel and attempt a reschedule.

Stay tuned for more details.

Attend the Growth and Environment forum to hear comments and opinions from Whatcom County Council candidates regarding  important growth, land use and environmental issues facing Whatcom County.  By answering a series of questions from forum moderators with audience input on topic selection, candidates will  discuss pivotal issues in the upcoming elections, such as new industrial development, growth management, the proposed jail, Lake Whatcom, Critical Areas protection and shoreline protection.

We have invited every candidate to attend and represent his or her views, and are hopeful for full participation from all eight candidates.

Out of respect for the quasi-judicial role that council members inhabit during major project land use permit evaluation, moderators will not ask direct questions related to support of or opposition to Gateway Pacific Terminal or other similar projects.
