Showdown in the 34th: Seattle Mayor
With 21 declared candidates for Mayor we’ll be hosting another showdown in West Seattle. We’ve invited all the Democratic candidates and other candidates who share our values to participate in the forum, and the remaining candidates are welcome to participate as well with the understanding that when we did this in April the first round left just the serious, progressive candidates; and the second round left only the viable candidates.
Note: If you have questions you’d like to hear one of the candidates answer please send them to Chris Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the program we may consider whether to endorse one (or more) of the candidates. Hope to see you there!
