April 6 Candidate Forum


The League sponsored a Zoom forum for the Democrat candidates for US State Representative for District 9 on Saturday, April 6.  Timothy (Tim) Peck and D. Liam Dorris, the two Democrat candidates for this position, attended the forum.  Issues were discussed regarding public education, the environment, health, affordable housing and much more.   Efforts were made to set up a comparable forum for the Republican candidates - Hugh Doty and Erin Houchin - but they declined.  You can view a recording of this forum by going to the Community Access Television website https://catstv.net/.
