Seattle CityClub hosts District 1 City Council debate on Oct. 10 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
District 1 Seattle City Council incumbent Lisa Herbold and candidate Phillip Tavel will vie for support on Thursday, Oct. 10, in a voter-engaged debate hosted by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Seattle CityClub. The event, which is free and open to the public, will also be broadcast and reported widely thanks to partnerships with local media.
The debate — one of seven debates for all City Council races to be held within or very close to district boundaries — will take place at 6 p.m. at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.
Financial support for the debates is provided by presenting sponsor Amazon, signature sponsor AARP Washington and district-level debate sponsors BNSF Railway, PEMCO, Seattle Credit Union, UW Evans School of Public Policy & Governance and Washington Policy Center Young Professionals. Community partners lending their in-kind support to the event include Goodwill, GSBA, Forterra, Solid Ground, and the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission.
CityClub expressed its gratitude to these organizations for supporting open civic dialogue for these important races. Sponsors and partners have no influence over the format, content, questions or other elements of the debates.
