Learn along with League moderator Karen Madsen about the judicial races in Snohomish County. They don't appear on the Primary ballot, but only on the General Election ballot for November 7th. We start off with Everett attorney Ann Brice explaining how judicial races have to follow a different set of rules for campaigning than other races, for example, what can be asked of candidates and what can't. We then hear from the WA State Supreme Court candidates Susan Owens, Steve Gonzalez, and Sheryl Gordon McCloud, and the two Cascade District Court candidates Jennifer Rancourt and Kristen Olbrechts.
In this extended edition (90 minutes) of Magazine on the Air, League member Karen Madsen conducts a forum with the Primary Election PUD commissioner candidates for two seats on the ballot. Candidates make opening and closing statements and respond to four questions posed by Karen.
Part 1 includes Sam Buchanan, Bruce King, Sid Logan, and Mary Rollins. Part 2 includes David Chan, Kaili Chickering, Kathy Vaughn, and Rebecca Wolfe.
