Nathan Hale Government classes are putting on a student led Election Forum the evening of Thursday, October 15th from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center involving candidates for Seattle School Board and would like to invite you, your friends and your neighbors to attend. Candidates will make short opening statements, respond to questions from students, and then make a short summary statement. Be an informed citizen and attend!
I have now been to four candidate forums and most were not well-attended. I urge you to attend this one because it has been very interesting to see how the candidates perform under pressure and may be the last one.
I have received my voters guide and I know ballots should be dropping by October 20th. I'll have a complete write-up of my views of the candidates (based on forums, interviews, etc.)
The Stranger put out their endorsements yesterday (with their usual flare and turn of phrase). For School Board they endorsed: Jill Geary, Rick Burke, Scott Pinkham and Leslie Harris.
Of all the questions the Stranger Election Control Board has had to ask
itself over these many years—questions like "Is 1:30 p.m. too early to
have a drink if you're already stoned?" and "Why does The Stranger
conference room have carpet on the walls?" and the perennial "What went
so wrong with these people's lives that they want to run for school
board?"—we'd never yet had to ask ourselves about pangolins. Until this
Interviews by KING-5 of all the candidates.
