Franklin County Candidate Forum in Pasco

Posted: Updated:
 PASCO, WA - The general election is fast approaching and the Pasco Chamber of Commerce hosted a Franklin County candidate forum today.
The county clerk, sheriff and commissioners seats are on the ballot.

Both incumbents and challengers took the podium today fielding questions about annexing donut hole residents and how to handle the Dennis Houston embezzlement scandal.

"Well in this day and age it seems like so much is pushed for through radio, internet, social media and stuff. It's really nice to grab a tangible feel whether they're the incumbent or challengers and really get to know them on a personal one on one level." said Colin Hastings, Executive Director of Pasco Chamber of Commerce

Local business leaders made up much of the audience but  the forum was open for everyone.
