The 31st Legislative District Democrats will host a forum featuring three candidates running for U.S. Congress in Washington’s 8th Congressional District. Jason Rittereiser, Dr. Kim Schrier, and Dr. Shannon Hader will answer questions posed by local citizens whom they would represent if elected in November.
The forum will be held Wednesday, April 25, during the regular monthly meeting of the 31st LD Democrats at East Pierce Fire & Rescue Station (10105 24th St E, Edgewood, WA 98371). The meeting will start at 7:00pm, and the forum will begin at 7:30pm. Candidates and the public are invited to arrive as early as 6:00pm for coffee and conversation.
Each of the candidates has requested endorsement from the 31st LD Democrats in their bid to replace retiring incumbent Representative Dave Reichert who has represented the 8th CD since 2005. In an effort to provide the public with as much information as possible about each of the candidates, the 31st LD Democrats will be hosting this question and answer forum. Four questions will be pre-chosen by the District’s Executive Board, and four more will be selected from questions solicited from the audience during the event. Each candidate will be allowed two minutes to answer each question as well as two minutes for an opening and a closing statement. The forum will be moderated by District Chair, Brian Gunn.
