The primary election for all of the local races is on August 18th, less than a month away. For anyone who cares about schools (and/or the closing of them), there’s an an important event at Garfield Community Center. The four candidates for school board district 5 will gather to take your questions and allow you to see which one will be the best advocate for the education of your children.
It all starts at 7pm, at 2323 E. Cherry St.
Not able to attend? We’ll be covering it live here on CDNews, and publishing updates to our new CDNews Live twitter account. Add your questions as either comments or Twitter updates and we’ll ask the candidates.
Also: Save time next week for another big election forum, this time including candidates from all of the major races.
I would like to ask the candidates what, if anything, can be done about the schools closing in our neighborhood, (can we change that or is it too late.)
also, what, if anything, would they do about the empty Mann building.
Hi: I am working on the Seattle Candidate Forum on July 27 at Mount Zion Church. We need 15-20 people to help with setup, various event logistics and cleanup beginning at 5:15 to make this event run smoothly and be a success for all. Please contact Andrew Taylor [email protected] or Kathryn Keller [email protected] if you are willing to help. Thanks in advance for your help. Kathryn
