Issaquah Mayoral and School Board Candidate's Forum

September is almost upon us and its time to buy new backpacks, pencils and go through those lists of supplies for your kid's classrooms.

Its also time for us PTA Legislative Reps to start thinking about elections, Legislative Assembly and getting input from our parents.

This year we have some local elections to make some decisions about. We have a Mayoral election as well as a School Board election.

Lucky for us the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce is making it easy on us for getting informed on the people who are running for election.

On September 17th from 4:00pm-6pm, the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce will host a Candidate's Forum. Attendance is expected to be high, so please register on their website. The following is information on the event from their website and a link to register.
