It’s almost a month away but you should put this on your calendar of things to do in July if you’re not out of town: the GSBA’s MEET THE CANDIDATES forum for the 2019 local elections in the Greater Seattle area. It’s happening Wednesday, July 17th at the Amazon Meeting Center on 7th Avenue. It’s a free event but you do need to register to attend!

MANY of the candidates in the races are SCHEDULED to attend…doesn’t mean they will; after all, other things do come up. We won’t hold it against them….unless they dump us for a different event…
