League of Women Voters Forum, October 13, 2011

by lewwaters

Tonight saw the inaugural use of a CVTV live broadcast from the new Library in Vancouver. Broadcast was the League of Women Voters Candidate forum for the 2011 election this November. I was very pleasantly surprised to see the room filled nearly to capacity by citizens who came out to hear what the candidates have to say.

All 6 city council candidates appeared and each was asked questions in order by seat position sought.

Josephine Wentzel and Bart Hansen started it off with opening statements and outlined their visions for the future of Vancouver. Both are articulate but with decidedly different views. Hansen leaned more on his short experience on council and work history with Clark County PUD. Wentzel relied on her history of being a Police Officer, Detective and her opposition to CRC and light rail being forced upon us with no vote from the people. Far from a single issue candidate, she also articulated her views on a called for fireworks ban in Vancouver by outlining some proposed restrictions to fireworks sale, after hearing public input. Hansen fell back on emails received calling for an outright ban, but also saying restrictions were needed, not an outright ban.
