The GSBA’s FACE TO FACE candidate forum is Seattle’s LGBTQ community’s chance to ask the questions it needs to ask the candidates in local elections and it’s happening this coming Tuesday, September 10th at Broadway Performance Hall on the Seattle Central College campus (corner of Broadway & Pike Street).
Candidates for 4 of the races for Seattle City Council are scheduled to attend including the pair running to represent District 3 which includes Capitol Hill itself, the city’s longtime LGBTQ neighborhood, incumbent Kshama Sawant and her challenger, Seattle PrideFest producer Egan Orion.
The event is happening from 5pm to 7:30pm and it is free to the public but you are encouraged to register beforehand. Go HERE to do that.
How is Seattle thriving during these boom times? Who is benefiting in our city, and who is being left behind? What will Seattle’s City Council look like in 2020? Who will be making decisions that will affect your business, the LGBTQ community, and your neighborhood?
Hear where your candidates stand at our annual Face to Face forum, featuring critical races in Seattle. Moderated by Brady Piñero Walkinshaw (CEO, Grist Media and former 43rd District Representative) and Liz Dunn (Principal, Dunn & Hobbes) this is a must attend candidate forum for small business owners, members of the LGBTQ community, and those who care about the future of their city.
