The Seaside Signal and Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District will host a board candidate forum on Thursday, May 2, from 7 to 8 p.m.

The event takes place at the Bob Chisholm Community Center, 1225 Avenue A, in Seaside. The event will be introduced by Rec District executive director and moderated by Signal editor R.J. Marx.

Seven candidates are on the ballot for two board seats in the May 21 Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District board election.

Three candidates will vie for the Position 5 seat, held by Rodney Roberts, appointed earlier this year after district board president Alan Evans stepped down.

Roberts seeks to return to the board for a full four-year term.

Also filing for the Position 5 seat are Patrick Duhachek and Lindsey Morrison.

The Position 4 seat comes vacant after current board member Edward Hassan announced plans to move outside the district.

John Chapman, Katharine Parker, Marti Wajc and Shirley Yates have filed to fill that seat.

Veronica Russell, Jeremy Mills and Michael Hinton fill the other three board seats. Each of their terms expire in 2021.

The special district election will take place May 21.

The last day to register for voters will be April 30. Registration cards postmarked by this date or submitted online no later than 11:59 are valid.
