The Tukwila community will have the chance to ask questions and hear the candidates for two positions on the Tukwila School Board at a candidates forum Wednesday, Oct. 9.

State Rep. Zack Hudgins is the moderator for the forum, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Foster Performing Arts Center, 4242 S. 144th St., Tukwila.

The School Board candidates are District 1, incumbent Mary E. Fertakis and Jennifer L. Johnson, and District 3, incumbent Alicia Waterton and Bobby Cruz.

At the forum, candidates will present introductory remarks.

Those attending will have a chance to submit questions in writing for the candidates just before the forum begins, which Hudgins will ask.

Alternatively, community members can submit questions beforehand via email to the Tukwila Reporter, which is sponsoring the forum. The forum is organized by local citizens Ellen Gengler and Chuck Parrish.

This is the only public forum planned for the Tukwila School Board races.

The general election is Nov. 5. Ballots are mailed to voters in mid-October.
