Whitman County Gazette - Serving Whitman County since 1877

Thumbs Up


August 16, 2018 | View PDF

There is a letter in the Gazette Aug. 9 issue, entitled "Thumbs down," criticizing the lack of information about candidates in this year's election. I am sure the Gazette and other newspapers would not object to publishing political ads, either. I would say that our area newspapers have done pretty well in covering the candidates, but those who would like much more information in depth can log onto http://lwvpullman.org/forums.html.

I was able to attend the voter forum put on by the Pullman League of Women Voters in Colfax. I was unable to take part in the one in Pullman. Fortunately, both of these were recorded and can be viewed online. Just type in that link and watch and listen to nearly two hours of candidate video, including candidates responding to audience questions for both forums, one done July 17 in Colfax, and the other done July 18 in Pullman.

Any person who may not have internet access can go to a public library and use their computers. Viewing the video of these forums is a great way to become educated about where the candidates stand on the issues.
