The Kent Black Action Commission presents a candidates forum on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 6 to 9 p.m., at Kent Commons, 525 Fourth Ave. N.

Candidates for state offices, including Legislative Districts 33 and 47, have been invited. So far, eight of 11 invitation have been accepted, KBAC said.

The general election is Nov. 6.

The forum is an opportunity for residents of Kent and South King County to gain first-hand knowledge of the people who are vying for public office and represent their interests.

The forum will consist of a candidates panel with a moderator directing questions to each one. As time permits, organizers will collect questions from those in attendance and pose them to the candidates.

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.
