The public is invited to a forum on April 29 featuring all candidates for open positions on the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District Board of Directors.
The forum will be held 1-3 pm in the Manzanita Room of THPRD’s Elsie Stuhr Center, 5550 SW Hall Blvd, Beaverton. The Stuhr Center is just a short distance (about a half-mile) from downtown Beaverton.
Each candidate in attendance will give a brief presentation and take questions from the audience. The candidates will also remain after the Q&A period to talk with anyone interested.
Three of the five positions on the THPRD Board are open this election season and will be decided on May 16:
- Position 1: Larry Pelatt (incumbent) v. Felicita Monteblanco.
- Position 2: Jerry Jones (incumbent) v. Stephanie Thompson.
- Position 3: Holly Thompson v. Lori Waldo v. Nathan Dahlin (all running for the seat occupied by Bob Scott, who chose not to run for reelection).
Winners will begin their term on July 1. Their four-year term will expire with the conclusion of THPRD’s fiscal year on June 30, 2021.
The forum is presented by the Friends of the Elsie Stuhr Center.
Refreshments will be provided. For more information, including directions to the Stuhr Center, call the center at 503-629-6342.
