City and County Councilmember Candidate Forum
Focus on the U District
Date: October 15 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Join us at a unique candidate forum that brings together both City and County councilmember candidates to discuss issues affecting the U District. City Council candidates Alex Pedersen and Shaun Scott, and King County Council candidates Larry Gossett and Girmay Zahilay will answer questions from our community groups and neighbors in attendance.
See how our future city and county councilmembers will build bridges to collaborate across legislative boundaries to represent our neighborhood’s interests. Coordination between councils is essential as the U District is impacted by the opening of light rail, high-rise development, displacement of affordable housing, chronic homelessness, and climate change.
This timely forum is on Tuesday, October 15th at 5:30pm at U Heights, just as ballots are mailed out to voters. As an informed voter, this is one evening you don’t want to miss. In case you missed our very successful forum in June, you can check out the event video online.
The forum will be co-hosted by the U District Small Businesses, U District Community Council, Livable U District, Seattle Displacement Coalition, and U District Advocates; held at U Heights Community Center; and live-streamed by KODX Radio.
