Forde, Tharinger tape forum for TV viewing tonight
PORT ANGELES -- The heat intensified in the race for Clallam County commissioners' District 1 seat Monday night when candidate Sue Forde and incumbent Steve Tharinger debated growth-related issues and government's role in county residents' lives.
Forde, 56, took a hard line against government bureaucracy, taxation and over-regulation, while Tharinger, 54, defended himself and the existing commissioners as protectors of taxpayers' money-saving interests.
The two conversed with three journalists during an hour-long ``Questions for Candidates'' TV interview segment videotaped before an audience of about 40 -- most of them Forde supporters -- at Port Angeles City Hall.
The program, sponsored by Peninsula Daily News and Peninsula News Network, will be broadcast tonight at 7 on Wave Broadband cable channel 3 in the Port Angeles-Sequim areas.
Forde and Tharinger made it clear Monday night that they have widely opposing views on most county issues, from stormwater regulation to salmon recovery to farmland preservation.
