Walla Walla Progressives Candidate Forum

Walla Walla Progressives organized a Candidate Forum on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at Whitman College. The forum featured Walla Walla City Council and Walla Walla County Port Commission candidates.

Walla Walla City Council Position 5 (West Ward) candidates Sharon Schiller and Susan Smiley-Nakonieczny spoke first.

Walla Walla City Council Position 7 (At Large) candidate Steve Moss (incumbent) spoke next. His opponent candidate Julian Saturno had committed to attend the event but did not show.

Walla Walla County Port Commission (District 1) candidate Kip Kelly spoke last. His opponent, Peter Swant (incumbent), had a prior family engagement and could not attend the forum.

Candidates for Walla Walla City Council Position 4 (East Ward) Ted Koehler and James Powell were not invited to the forum, according to Walla Walla Progressives, because they had previously participated in an event hosted by the group.

NOTE: The microphone used to feed audio to the camera was powered off inadvertently during the event. There is a notable change in audio quality, but we digitally enhanced the audio to make it audible as possible. Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve the quality of our coverage.
