A pair of forums are set for next week that will feature candidates for the special election for Corvallis City Council in Ward 7.
Linda Gearhart, Lucas Letelier, Brad Longman, Paul Shaffer and Susan Walenza are on the Nov. 5 ballot. The winner will take office later in November once the results have been certified.
The seat has been vacant since Bill Glassmire resigned eight months into his third term after suffering serious injuries in a July 10 bicycle incident. Corvallis Mayor Biff Traber announced Glassmire’s resignation at the Aug. 5 council session.
