Just a reminder that Wednesday, September 21 is your chance to meet with local candidates at the Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA) Candidate Forum. A number of area candidates will attend including candidates for Secretary of State (out gay woman Tina Podlodowski) and candidate for U.S. House Seat representing the Washington 7th Congressional District (out gay man Brady Piñero Walkinshaw).
Noticeably missing is the front runner for the 7th Congressional seat, Pramila Jayapal who took the majority of votes in the August primary. Jayapal will be in Washington but not the state…she’s attending a “Pramila for Congress!” event in our nation’s capitol on Wednesday.
The GSBA event is happening at the Erickson Theatre Off Broadway, 1524 Harvard Ave, between Pike and Pine and behind the Egyptian Cinema.
Our annual Candidate Forum is back! We are proud to feature some of our region’s most exciting races as the only forum organized by the LGBT community.
Featured candidates include:
Superintendent of Public Instruction: Erin Jones & Chris Reykdal for Superintendent of Public Instruction
State Rep., 43rd District: Friends of Nicole Macri & People for Dan Shih
7th Congressional District*: Brady Piñero Walkinshaw for Congress
Secretary of State*: Tina Podlodowski
*All candidates were invited. Pramila Jayapal and Kim Wyman had scheduling conflicts and were unable to attend.
