With two Edmonds School District Board of Directors positions drawing multiple candidates, voters have some homework to do prior to the Aug. 6 primary election. To help you in your decision-making, the digital news network of My Edmonds News, Lynnwood Today and MLTnews is sponsoring a candidate forum at the Lynnwood Library on Wednesday, July 24.
All candidates for District 3 and 5 have been invited to attend. In District 3, this includes incumbent Gary Noble and challengers Jennifer Cail, Rory Graves and Boe Lindgren. (Lindgren has indicated he has a conflict.) In District 5, candidates Casey Auve, Lisa Hunnewell, Nancy Katims and Rina Redrup are seeking the open position being vacated by Diana White, who isn’t seeking re-election.
Note that while each school board position represents a specific area, all voters living in the district get to vote for all positions.
The July 24 event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Lynnwood Library, 19200 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood, and will be moderated by Publisher Teresa Wippel. All candidates will make a one-minute opening statement, answer questions and have a two-minute closing statement. Attendees can submit questions on notecards prior to the event.
