Locals invited to hear election candidates viewpoints on issues during tomorrow's forum
YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash.- The final two state representative candidates for district 14 are urging the community to come hear their viewpoints on local issues during Tuesday night's forum in Yakima.
Sasha Bently tells Action News if she is elected. She would first address the McCleary Decision and work on fixing budgets that are appropriate for our local teachers.
She would also focus on fixing the public records act that was left unsolved during the last voting session.
Chris Corry says he would focus working on farm worker rights, and making sure farmers who are using state lands are given fair access to their contracts.
He would also focus on mental health and provide more services for those who need it in Yakima, as well as fixing the McCleary Decision.
"There are a lot of issues in this large diverse district, so we need that active representative who is ready to address all of our issues and then be there. Talked to us, listening to us, representing us," said Sate Rep. Dist. 14 POS 1 Candidate Sasha Bently.
"I love where I live, I'm a committed to our community, I am a father of three. My wife and I are active in our community and we love giving back and I'm looking forward to serving in this capacity to help better our district," said Sate Rep. Dist. 14 POS 1 Candidate Chris Corry.
The candidates for sheriff, county commissioner, and legislative districts will be discussing issues going on in our community starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the city council chambers.
