Two election forums next week in Penticton

All candidates forum on the environment, and West Bench forum, on Oct. 11

There are going to be two all-candidates forums on Oct. 11, one for West Bench voters and another for Penticton Council candidates on environmental topics.

The West Bench forum takes place at West Bench Elementary, with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the fun getting underway at 7 p.m.

The moderated forum will hear from the candidates for Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen Area F director: Riley Gettens, Rick Hatch, Ashley Justin and Leah Schulting. Ginny Manning and Kathy Pierre, candidates for the rural areas trustee seat on the Okanagan Skaha School District board will also be at the forum.

Each candidate will get to deliver an opening address, final statement and field questions from the floor in between.

The all-candidates forum on the environment takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 11 in the Shatford Centre, 760 Main St., in Penticton.

The Okanagan-Similkameen Conservation Alliance and First Things First Okanagan are inviting Penticton mayoral and councillor candidates to participate in a forum on the environment, climate change and sustainable energy.

There will be two rounds of questions. The moderator will choose the questions from a list and each candidate gets two minutes to respond to each of the questions asked, one question on climate change and sustainability, and one question on the environment.

If time allows, there will be questions taken from the floor submitted to the organizers and read by them.
