Issaquah Chamber of Commerce leaders will host a luncheon and candidate forum Tuesday.
The event will feature City Council candidates Maureen McCarry and Joan Probala, and Tola Marts and Nathan Perea, and school board candidates Marnie Maraldo and Wright Noel.
Register for the event by 9 a.m. Friday. Call the chamber at 392-7024 or e-mail Adrianne Pavlik at firstname.lastname@example.org to make a reservation.
The event will be held at Hilton Garden Inn, 1800 N.W. Gilman Blvd. A meet and greet with the candidates begins at 11 a.m. Lunch will be served at 11:45 a.m., and the program begins then. The cost is $25 for members with advance reservations and $35 for all walk-in attendees.
“It is important that candidates for City Council and school board know that the 467 members of the chamber are interested in their stance on issues affecting Issaquah business,” chamber CEO Matt Bott said.
Befitting the host, the questions will be focused on business. The chamber does not endorse candidates.
