WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. – Tonight’s election forum on growth and the environment featuring candidates for the Whatcom County Council has been canceled.

The four conservative candidates, incumbents Kathy Kershner and Bill Knutzen and challengers Ben Elenbaas and Michelle Luke, have all refused to participate.

The forum was organized by local groups Futurewise Whatcom and Re-sources for Sustainable Communities.

The non-profit groups will try to reschedule the forum.
