The Legislature voted to allow it, but would publicly funded political campaigns work in Pierce County? Would citizens go for it?

A panel of speakers will explore the topic at a public forum Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Tahoma Unitarian Universalist Church, 1115 S. 56th St.

Panelists include Tacoma City Councilwoman Marilyn Strickand, Seattle City Councilman Nick Licata, Craig Salins, director for Washngton Public Campaigns, and Julio Quan, former director of Tacoma’s Centro Latino.

The event is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Tacoma-Pierce County, Washington Public Campaigns, the Pierce County chapter of America in Solidarity and the Tahoma Unitarian congregation.
