This year’s talked-about Seattle City Council elections–the first under a new districted system–shook up the primaries for some interesting results. At Town Hall we love a good political debate, so in the spirit of democracy and discussion, we’re teaming up with Seattle Channel to present a series of live debates (with moderated Q&A) for each of the seven districts. Learn more about the candidates running in your district–and don’t forget to vote on November 3.
District 1 debate: Lisa Herbold, legislative aide to Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata, and Shannon Braddock, Chief of Staff for County Councilmember Joe McDermott.
Moderators: Lead moderator Tracy Record, Editor of the West Seattle Blog; community moderator Cecile Hansen, Chair of the Duwamish Tribe; community moderator Fernando Meija, Organizing Director, One America; and Q&A moderator Stesha Brandon, Town Hall Program Director.
Have a question for the candidates? Tweet a question using #seacouncil or send your questions for the candidates to firstname.lastname@example.org help us shape the conversation. We may ask your question at the event. Please specify which district race you’re writing about.
