Issaquah residents can hear legislative candidates discuss education and the economy at forums Tuesday and Wednesday.
The candidates in the contests to represent Issaquah in the state House of Representatives plan to attend a schools-focused forum hosted by the Issaquah Valley Elementary Parent Teacher Association at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Though the forum is open to the public, state PTA bylaws prohibit the display of candidate signs, buttons or materials during the discussion.
The next morning, the candidates meet again at Hilton Garden Inn to discuss the local economy at a forum sponsored by the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce. The breakfast meeting starts at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Register for the forum here.
The incumbent Republicans, Glenn Anderson and Jay Rodne, and Democrats David Spring and Gregory Hoover plan to attend both forums.
The contest for the Position 1 seat pits Rodne against Hoover. The race for the other seat includes Anderson and Spring.
Election Day is Nov. 2, and ballots must be postmarked or dropped off at designated locations by 8 p.m.
