LAST CALL: WSB forum with City Council, County Council candidates is Monday. Got questions?

10:47 AM: Tomorrow night – Monday, September 25 – we’re presenting your next chance to see the candidates in two major races that’ll be decided in the general election. Voting starts in mid-October, so if you haven’t decided yet, it’s a good time to see the contenders side by side. At 6:30 pm, we’ll talk with County Council District 8 (West Seattle, White Center, Vashon/Maury Islands, Burien) candidates Teresa Mosqueda (current Seattle City Council citywide rep) and Sofia Aragon (current Burien Mayor). After a short break at 7, City Council District 1 (West Seattle, South Park, Georgetown, part of south downtown) candidates Rob Saka and Maren Costa (neither of whom has previously held elected office) are in the spotlight. This is at the Senior Center of West Seattle in The Junction (4217 SW Oregon), and you are welcome to be there in person. We’re planning questions in advance, so if there’s something you’d like us to ask, please email it by tonight – – thank you!

7:06 PM: We just got word that one of the COUNTY Council candidates will be unable to attend in person, due to illness, so the first part of the night will have to be postponed to a TBA date. However, the CITY Council candidates are still a go – we’ll start their forum at 7 pm Monday.

    Not sure the best way to word the question, but most of the city’s workers are on the verge of going on strike due to the Mayor’s firm insistence on a 1% raise after years of record inflation.  I would like to know where the city council candidates stand on the issue of city workers’ pay, and how they plan to work with the Mayor and other councilmembers to wrap up bargaining with the Coalition of City Unions.

    Any chance this is going to be streamed?

    • WSB September 24, 2023 (7:49 pm)

      No. We will be recording video to upload later in the night (unedited so our turnaround is usually fairly quick).

Sorry, comment time is over.
