The Mason County Republicans hosted a Judicial Candidates Forum Monday night at Mason PUD 3’s Auditorium. All five candidates running for Mason County District Court Judge attended. The candidates are Eugene C. Austin, John R. Bonin, Stephen D. Greer, George A. Steele and Eric Valley. Each candidate had two minutes for opening statements, answered questions, and gave two-minute closing statements.

MasonWebTV Powered by HCC broadcast the forum live. However, due to limited internet speed and improper use of microphones and the in-house sound system, this video may be difficult to watch. The video may skip and the audio may be hard to hear from time to time.These issues were out of our control.

Unfortunately, MasonWebTV Powered by HCC was not able to record the full forum but did record the candidates’ closing statements, uninterrupted.
