On Thursday night, there is an event at Seattle University (Pigott Auditorium) from 6:30- 9:30 p.m. with the challengers, Sharon Peaslee, Marty McLaren, Michelle Buetow and Kate Martin. All the incumbents declined the invitation from Seattle U to come. Each candidate will do a short presentation and then the audience can ask questions. Sounds like a good opportunity to really go in-depth with the challengers.
From Nathan Hale high school:
On the evening of Tuesday, October 25th all the candidates for School Board Director in Seattle will be participating in a Candidate Forum at Nathan Hale High School from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center with a half hour social time in the foyer of the PAC before the event from 7:00 to 7:30. This student led forum will allow voters a chance to hear candidates for the School Board explain their positions on educational issues facing the Seattle School District, and to respond to questions from the audience. We hope that you will be able to attend, and please feel free to invite other interested people as well.
If you have any questions, please call Tim Ames at 206-252-3793 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions concerning the event.
Also, from a sharp-eyed reader who actually read the entire Voter's pamphlet, there's the Mock Election sponsored by the Secretary of State's office for K-12 students.
Grades 6-12 will vote on the statewide ballot measures.
Meanwhile students in K-5 will vote on the following (fictional) measures:
1) Should schools require students to wear uniforms? Vote yes or no.
2) Should it be legal for students to bring their pets to school? Vote yes or no.
3) Should schools take two week breaks every three months instead of a two month summer break? Vote yes or no.
There is teacher info at the site and voting is from October 31 to Nov. 4th. Ask your teacher about participating.
