About a dozen people are in the basement meeting room at the West Seattle (Admiral) Branch Library (and two citywide-TV photojournalists), where mayoral candidate Mike McGinn is hosting his third WS “town hall,” till about 11 am – he’s moving on to another area of the city at 11:30. He’ll be doing Q/A after the opening speech he’s giving right now – we’ll add highlights later. 11:07 AM: The town hall’s over. Always a big difference between in-person events and what you see in the “media” campaigns (TV and other forms of advertising) – he didn’t say anything about his opponent Joe Mallahan until more than a half-hour into the session. Most questions were about transportation, business and schools. *We will publish details of this as a separate article and will add the URL here when it’s up.
