D6 candidate forum this week

On Thursday, you’ll have another chance to hear from the two Distrcit 6 candidates vying for a seat on Seattle City Council.

The Central Ballard Residents Association is hosting a forum with candidates Dan Strauss and Heidi Wills. Each candidate will have a half hour to take questions from the audience — Dan Strauss will start and Heidi Wills will be second.

The forum will be held at Merrill Gardens at Ballard (2418 NW 56th St.) up the stairs and to the right.

Elect women

No, elect people whose positions and behavior you agree with. Don’t discriminate based on gender.

I already voted, and not for Wills due to her history of corruption and the questionable motives of her corporate supporters. Vote for Strauss!

You’re the one voting based on gender, and I’m the sexist? You’ve lost it.

What would your response be like if I said “Elect men”?

Welcome to Nuttyville, where anything goes. She says red, you say blue, She says hot, you say cold. You say hi, she says F U pal. You say it’s nice. She says define nice. This my friend IS the true definition of a confused gal. One co-opted by a lazy and inept thought process, where FEELINGS only count.

You sound like one of those people that say “reverse racism” is the real problem. Do you show up to BLM rallies and hold up a sign that says “White Lives Matter”?

Why, so they can all hide behind their skirts? So we can’t judge or “be mean to” them? This IS why we’re where we are today: pure BS like this. Are you proud of the crime and drugs and everything along with it today? Can’t have it both ways darling. Take off your 1960’s feminist glasses and move on. How stereotypical of you as well, assuming ALL women are dumbass liberals.

Why? Woman are not superior to men. And they certainly are as arrogant as men.

This kind of sexist talk needs to be banned from this forum.

Agreed.

MODS – Please ban elenchos2 from this forum due to her rampant sexism. Picking political candidates purely on the basis of gender is clear cut sexism.

Thanks!

trump’s mouth stuff is bad enough, we don’t need another one – that kisser on Strauss is repulsive.

Sexist pig. WTF does POTUS have to do with a single mofo thing here, besides YOUR anxieties and ridiculous statement? So by electing more women, does that then mean more accountability of them? Or, just an apology? Personally, I think you should take your gender politics and SHOVE THEM. Hillary also thinks you’re a Russian agent.

Did somebody say Russian Agent? A comrade? Ah, Glasnost to you, and Vodka Perestroika with Pierogies! Now, dosvidanya, comrade, I must get back to undermining United States by infiltrating local neighborhood blog!

what the hell are you talking about? i mentioned trump because he has a really weird mouth. strauss also has a really weird (and gross) mouth.

maybe you were replying to someone else because you don’t make any sense in relation to what i posted.

When a former boss describes you in “Two words: Boy Scout,” it’s time to vote for the candidate that isn’t so eager to please. And when Mike O’Brien–who’s giving up his seat due to the unpopularity of his policies–declines to endorse Dan Strauss, the candidate who all but admits he’s Mini-Mike, you should know what to expect from Councilmember Dan Strauss: four more years of the same.

aka “Ballard’s paperboy.” I saw him at the first candidates’ forum, and he did seem a bit … puppyish. Wills came across as more mature.
