Challenges face Bellingham schools, candidates say
Forums coming up
Several forums are coming up for the candidates to speak and answer questions. This is what we have confirmed so far:
* South Hill Neighborhood Association and the Fairhaven Neighbors Association will have its event at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7, at the Fairhaven Park Pavillion. Candidates or their representatives will make a short statement, and then it will be opened up for questions from the audience.
* League of Women Voters of Bellingham/Whatcom County is partnering with American Association of University Women to put together a joint forum on ballot issues that will cover I-1033 and Ref. 71, as well as the Whatcom Library Levy, and the Bellingham School Board Candidates, 9:45 a.m. to noon Oct. 17, at the Bellingham Senior Activity Center, 315 Halleck St.
