To The Eagle:

The Wahkiakum County Republican and Democratic Parties formed a joint Subcommittee for Debates/Forums. I was excited to serve on this committee and in January we began planning mass gatherings so Wahkiakum County residents could get to know political candidates and submit questions. That came to a screeching halt with Covid 19.

And then Zoom arrived as a communication tool. I am pleased to announce that Wahkiakum County will hold its first debate on Zoom Wednesday, June 24, 2020 from 7-8 p.m. This debate will be with candidates for Wahkiakum County Commissioner open positions.

We need your input. You can be part of history by submitting questions for the candidates by Tuesday, June 23 by 5 p.m. Please submit your questions to See if your question is presented and how the candidates answer it! Also use this email if you have any questions.

The Wahkiakum County Commissioner Candidates are Mike Backman (incumbent) and Lee Tischer for County Commissioner #1 plus Dan Cothren (incumbent) and Tim Lawry for County Commissioner #2.
