PORT ANGELES — An hourlong general election forum hosted by the Peninsula Daily News at 6 p.m. today will explore issues in the Port of Port Angeles commissioner race between Colleen McAleer and Del DelaBarre.

The question-and-answer session, modeled after news interview programs such as “Meet the Press,” will be at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Training Center, 401 E. First St.


It will be moderated by PDN Senior Staff Writer Paul Gottlieb.

McAleer, 46, the port's director of business development, and DelaBarre, 75, an event services company co-owner and former program management consultant, are running for the Sequim-area District 1 seat now held by Paul McHugh, who was eliminated in the primary.

The public will not be able to ask questions of the candidates at the forum.

But the PDN is accepting readers' queries until noon today that may be used at the forum.

Please email questions to

Question format

Questions must be aimed at both candidates. Questions directed solely at one of the candidates will not be considered.

The port commission election is the only countywide race in the Nov. 5 general election.

Ballots will be mailed to voters Oct. 16 and must be postmarked Nov. 5 or received by the county Auditor's Office by 8 p.m. on that date.

The PDN General Election Voter Guide will be published Oct. 18.
