Candidate forum set for College Place Council


COLLEGE PLACE — A forum for College Place City Council candidates will be Wednesday.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. at John Sager Middle School, 1755 S. College Ave.

Four seats on the Council are up for election, but only two races are contested.

In the mayor’s race, candidate Lonnie Croft is running against incumbent Mayor Rick Newby.

The second contested race was to be for the Council’s Position 1 seat between Julie Scott and Wesley Bernal. However, Bernal announced Friday that he has withdrawn from the race. Because the ballots were already prepared, Bernal’s name will appear on the ballots that will be mailed Oct. 18.

The uncontested races are for the Council’s Position 2 and the Position 3 seat. Adam Keatts is the sole candidate for Position 2 and Marge Nyhagen, the incumbent, is running for re-election to Position 3.
