Candidates for lieutenant governor to attend local debate
June 12, 2012
Voters can hear from candidates vying for the No. 2 job in state government at a June 21 event.
The debate among candidates for lieutenant governor is sponsored by the Issaquah/Sammamish Tea Party and the Woodinville/Redmond Tea Party Patriots. GOP candidates Glenn Anderson, a state representative for the Issaquah area, and former state Sen. Bill Finkbeiner plan to attend.
The race also includes incumbent Lt. Gov. Brad Owen, a Democrat.
The debate is at 6:30 p.m. in the Eagle Room at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way. The event is open to the public.
The emcee for the event is Sammamish City Councilman John Curley.
The lieutenant governor carries few significant responsibilities. The official duties include standing in for the governor if he or she is incapacitated, presiding over the state Senate, and serving on a handful of committees and commissions, such as the State Finance Committee.
