LWVCC Shares Links to Candidate Interviews & Debates

During this time of social distancing and restrictions on public gatherings, The League of Women Voters of Coos County (LWVCC) employed different methods to provide impartial information to voters prior to the May Primary Election. Instead of live public forums, the League offered recorded interviews through Zoom, and video recorded debates (when possible) without an audience.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization with a mission to encourage the active and informed participation of citizens in government. The League never supports or opposes any candidate or political party and aims to provide impartial information to voters about candidates' view on issues, and to stimulate interest and participation in the election.

Interviews of Primary Candidates for US House of Representatives, District 4

In collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Oregon, LWVCC scheduled virtual interviews with candidates for Congressional District 4 when we could not hold a previously scheduled public debate in April due to Stay-at-Home orders from Governor Brown. The Virtual Interviews were held on May 4th for Democratic candidates, Doyle Canning & Peter DeFazio, and Republican candidate Nelson Ijih. Republican candidate, Alek Skarlatos, did not respond to the invitation for an interview.

The recording made of the Interviews of Candidates for US House of Representatives of Oregon's 4th Congressional District can still be viewed here using the following video time schedules for each candidate.

Democratic Candidates: Doyle Canning 0 to 34:50 and Peter DeFazio 34:54 to 1:11
