Who wants to lead Washington County?
The public is invited to meet the candidates for chairman of the Washington County Board of Commissioners at a forum set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 1, at the Broadway Rose, 12850 S.W. Grant Ave., Tigard. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the program begins at 7 p.m.
The chairman of the five-member Board of Commissioners is an at-large, non-partisan position with a four-year term.
Four people are in the race: Ryan Deckert spent 10 years in the Oregon Legislature; Kathryn Harrington has served for a decade as Metro Councilor; Bob Terry is serving his second term as Washington County Commissioner; and Shabba Woodley ran in the Democratic primary for U.S. Congress in 2016.
Dana Haynes, managing editor of The Times, the Sherwood Gazette and the King City Regal Courier, is moderating. The event is hosted by the East Washington County Democrats and Oregon House District 35 Democrats.
