The Greater Brush Prairie Neighborhood Association will sponsor a forum for Clark County commissioner candidates, 7 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Hockinson Fire Station, 17718 N.E. 159th St.

Candidates from districts 1 and 2 have been invited.

District 1 candidates are Ron Barca, Bob Freund, Joe Tanner, Darren Wertz and the incumbent, Tom Mielke. District 2 candidates are Roman Battan, Pat Campbell, David Madore and the incumbent, Marc Boldt.

Questions for the candidates have been prepared, but additional questions will be taken from the audience.
