WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. – The election season is well underway.

The Bill Mize Forum Wednesday night marked the start of candidate forums for the 2013 local election year.

Some common questions from the audience focused on growth management, water rights, the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal and building permits.

Nearly twenty candidates running for offices ranging from Mount Baker School Board to Whatcom County Council packed the Rome Grange to state their positions on those and other local issues.

The primary election is August 6th.
