Coming up on Monday, July 8th will be another chance to meet candidates running to represent District 6 in Seattle City Council.
The event, organized by Salmon Bay Park Stewards, is being called a “play date” with candidates. It will be held at Salmon Bay Park, and is meant to be an informal opportunity to connect and have conversations with those running.
The following candidates have confirmed that they’ll be there: Jay Fathi, Sergio Garcia, Melissa Hall, Jon Lisbin, Kate Martin, Joey Massa, John Peeples, Ed Pottharst, Terry Rice, Dan Strauss, and Heidi Wills.
The intent is, “to provide access and availability for busy parents who might like to connect with campaigns and candidates but may have challenges attending panel discussions with childcare, evening hours, etc.”
Everyone is welcome, and it’s meant to be casual — “come as you are,” they say. The candidates will be there between 4pm and 7pm — “BYO picnic (+kids) optional”.
