Candidates for the Whatcom County Council sat side by side for a forum sponsored by the Whatcom Tea Party in the Ferndale High School auditorium on Wednesday, July 17. From left are: Michelle Luke and Carl Weimer of the 1st District; Ken Mann and Ben Elenbaas, 2nd District; Kathy Kershner and Barry Buchanan, 3rd District; and Bill Knutzen, at-large. Candidate Rudd Browne was absent. Responding to audience questions, they talked about growth management in Whatcom County, building a new jail, property rights, water supply, Lake Whatcom, wind turbines, livestock slaughter facilities, climate change and more. They could speak only indirectly on the Gateway Pacific Terminal proposal, as the County Council will act in a quasi-judicial role in decisions on that project.  (Calvin Bratt/Lynden Tribune)
