"The League of Women Voters of Thurston County [WA] has staged an increased number of public forums during this election season for the benefit of Sound Sound voters. ... Partnering with TCTV and The Olympian for different events, the league has taken a leadership role this year in providing opportunities for voters to get to know the candidates and the issues. ... A recent league forum at The Washington Center for the Performing Arts attracted more than 300 people to hear about the Thurston Public Power Initiative. And a similar event for the 10th Congressional District this week drew another large crowd. ... Kudos to this civic-minded group."
