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 3 debate: Kshama Sawant, current Seattle City Council Member, and Pamela Banks, President of the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle.
Moderators: Lead moderator Erica Barnett, Communications Director of NARAL Washington; community moderator Jazmin Williams, Founder of Rouge Lioness; community moderator Bryan Adamson, Seattle University School of Law; community moderator Danielle Askini, Executive Director of Gender Justice League and Q&A moderator Edward Wolcher, Town Hall Community Programs Curator.
