It's an Executive Forum after all

CountyExecForum Pierce County Executive candidates danced around some great questions tonight at a candidates forum hosted by the Korean Women’s Association. Moderated by Tacoma’s own Derek Young, the event filled seats with a diverse cross-section of Pierce County’s Asian-Pacific Islander communities, with Korean, Vietnamese and Cambodian translators on hand.

Profound kudos to the Korean Women’s Association and event organizers for a thoughtfully arranged presentation that really took everyone attending into account. In a diverse community like Pierce County, it often feels like public forums ignore a large percentage of the local population. For anyone who wants to learn how to be truly inclusive, call whoever organized this forum. They got it down.

For the full story, see this Thursday’s edition of the Weekly Volcano.
