Mayoral candidate forum cancelled
September 16, 2021
The Eagle received word Monday that the forum for Cathlamet mayor candidates scheduled for Wednesday has been cancelled. Here is the notice:
It is with much sadness that, after much discussion this evening, the Forum Team has decided to cancel the Mayor Forum scheduled for Wednesday, September 22. We have two main reasons for our decision:
1. concerns about safety during the covid pandemic, for example, the Town has returned to remote-only meetings, and
2. respecting the voting public's apparent lack of interest in the Forum at this time, either in person or via remote.
. . .
Our apologies for this not working out as we had hoped.
. . .
It may be that in a few weeks, closer to when the ballots drop or shortly afterwards, conditions may change, and we revisit the decision and offer to do a Forum closer to election day.
Ron Wright for the Forum team
