This is a big election year for Seattle, with 7 city council positions up for re-election. Ballard is in District 6 and we have a dozen candidates competing in the August primary.
Mark your calendar for our Ballard District Council candidates’ forum on Wednesday, June 12, and look for other opportunities to meet candidates in person prior to then. Many are actively doorbelling and hosting events so voters can ask questions and convey priorities and hopes for our neighborhood and city.
This week, Speak Out Seattle is holding a professionally moderated forum at Phinney Neighborhood Association, at 7pm on Tuesday, April 23. Arrive early for available seating. It will also be streamed online and archived on YouTube.
Also, for those in the Frelard / Fremont area, on Monday, April 22, Fremont Neighborhood Council is hosting a candidate meet-n-greet. It will include candidates from both District 6 and District 4 to the east, as Fremont bridges those two council districts.
