Candidates and Island Hospital levy proponents gathered at City Hall Thursday evening for a forum hosted by the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce. In addition to City and Port candidates, the event drew incumbents including state representatives Kris Lytton and Jeff Morris. Also on hand was Skagit County Commissioner Ron Wesen. Thanks to the Chamber for providing this opportunity to meet and hear remarks from those seeking public office.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
