Public forum features Secretary of State candidates

In an effort to provide a service to citizens and become participants in the election process, the ninth grade HiCap Social Studies Class of Northshore Junior High will hold a public forum on the Secretary of State's race Thursday, Oct. 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the school, 12101 NE 160th St., Bothell.
   At this point, three candidates have indicated they plan to attend: Don Bonker, Democrat; Chris Loftis, Reform Party; Sam Reed, Republican.
   The format of this forum will be a five-minute opening statement from each candidate, a round-robin series of answers to prepared questions to be followed by questions from the audience (if time and circumstances permit) and a five-minute closing statement from each candidate.
