The Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce and the Issaquah Highlands Council have partnered to organize the communitywide forum to provide businesses and residents with an opportunity to hear directly from candidates about the topics of creating a strong economy, education/workforce development and community success.

The forum will feature the candidates from the local races who have declared competitors, including mayoral candidates Fred Butler and Joe Forkner, and school board candidates Lisa Callan and Alison Meryweather.

The event format is organized by the chamber’s Government Affairs Committee and will be moderated by Erin McCallum, of Strategic Campaign Group.

The forum is from 4-6 p.m. at Blakely Hall, 2550 N.E. Park Drive.  The public is invited, but RSVP is mandatory to ensure sufficient seating. Make your reservation here.
