Candidate Forum Night - April 18Mount Rainier residents, mark your calendar for the Candidate Forum Night on Thursday, April 18, 2013, 6-8pm, at the Mount Rainier Nature Center. This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions of the candidates for the open city council seats.
As a reminder, the Mount Rainier City Council is composed of two Wards (PDF) and a Mayor elected at-large. The four year terms are staggered so that one representative of each Ward is elected every other year. Up for election this year is the Mayor, the Ward 2 seat held by Ivy Thompson, and the Ward 1 seat held by Bill Updike (who is stepping down).
Nominating petitions are due to the election board on the night of April 1, so stay tuned to find out who will be competing in these races!
