XING Crown Eco Org: Whatcom council forum on environment canceled
With no conservative candidates | BELLINGHAM TheNewsTribune - A candidate forum on growth and the environment was canceled because none of the four conservative Whatcom County Council hopefuls were going to participate. | http://crowncapitalmngt.newsvine.com/ More
The organizers, RE Sources for Sustainable Communities and Futurewise, announced the cancelation Wednesday, July 31, one day before the forum was to be held. They hope to reschedule it before the election on Nov. 5.
It was unclear late Wednesday whether the organizers would ever get that majority.
Knutzen had said earlier this week that he didn't want to take part in a forum hosted by Futurewise. The anti-sprawl group has filed challenges to what it perceives as the county's overly permissive rural-growth rules.
