The community is invited to attend the forum, which will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19 at Cherry Crest Elementary School, 12400 NE 32nd Street in Bellevue.

The eight City Council candidates will answer questions on their positions in regards to important issues facing Bellevue, such as traffic, public safety, and utilities.

There are two candidates for each of four positions: hearing their points of view will allow residents to make the best choices for governance in the city. The forum will be moderated by Joe Michaels. Refreshments will be served.

The forum, open to all and free of charge is sponsored by Bridle Trails Community Club, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit nonpartisan organization. The club does not endorse candidates.
