Along with Olsen, the evening’s live voting guides include:

  • Former Mayor Mike McGinn
  • Alex Hudson and Sarah Anne Lloyd, co-founders of Seattlish
  • Washington Bus Executive Director Toby Crittenden
  • Marcus Harrison Green, founder and editor of the South Seattle Emerald
  • Paul Constant, co-founder of the Seattle Review of Books and fellow at Civic Ventures
  • Former City Council candidate and campaign organizer Michael Maddux

This is your chance to talk through the issues and ask any questions you might have—and yes, we will have stamps. The event is all-ages, so even those who aren’t eligible to vote but would like to talk through the issues are invited to come learn more.
