It’s almost election time, so join the Buckman Community Association as we present our Spring 2018 Candidate Forum, Thursday, April 12, from 7 to 9 pm in the Multnomah County Board Room, 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd.

We’ll have candidates from both City Council Commissioner positions as well as the “follow the money” position of Multnomah County Auditor. For Council Position 2: Nick Fish (Incumbent), Julia DeGraw and Phillip Wolfe. For Position 3 being vacated due to Dan Saltzman’s retirement: Stuart Emmons, JoAnn Hardesty, Loretta Smith, Andrea Valderrama, and Felicia Williams.

For County Auditor: Scott Learn, Jennifer McGuirk and Mark Ulanowicz. BCA candidate forums are structured, unique, interesting and attendees report they learn volumes about the candidates and their stance on important issues. Plus we’ll have pizza and other refreshments available at the break. Got a burning question you’d like us to ask the candidates?  Email: buckmanboard@googlegroups.com

BCA meets monthly every second Thursday of the month in the Multnomah County Board Room, 7 to 9 pm. The BCA Boards meets prior at 6:20 pm. All are welcome. See buckmanpdx.org
