Pierce County Executive candidates headline City Club dinner Sept. 3

City Club of Tacoma’s Weds., Sept. 3 dinner program will feature a forum of all four candidates for Pierce County Executive — County Councilmembers Shawn Bunney and Calvin Goings, Tacoma City Councilmember Mike Lonergan, and County Auditor Pat McCarthy.

The forum will be moderated by members of the League of Women Voters of Tacoma-Pierce County.

This City Club meeting will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Wheelock Student Center Rotunda on the campus of the University of Puget Sound.

In November 2006, Pierce County voters approved Charter Amendment No. 3, which provides that the election of all county officials, except judges and the prosecuting attorney, be conducted using instant runoff voting, now referred to as ranked choice voting. Thus, there will be no primary election for the county executive race.

The public is invited to the forum, during which each of the candidates will speak briefly and then take questions from the audience.

Advance reservations are required by Aug. 28. Cost is $23 for members, and $30 for guests. Call (253) 272-9561 or visit http://www.cityclubtacoma.org for more information .
