November 6th is Election Day. The Seattle Times and the P-I weighed in today (10/7/07) on their choices for City Council. They agreed on Harrell, Burgess, Godden & Clark.
You need not take their word for it - below are a couple of great neighborhood resources to help you, as well as the online Seattle Voters' Guide, with links to candidates' web pages.
The City Neighborhood Council's fifth biennial City Council candidate forum, which was held on Sept. 21, is now on the Seattle Channel web site at http://www.seattlechannel.org/videos/video.asp?ID=5550712
It is 90 minutes long, and features lively exchanges between all nine candidates, responding to one another's questions and those posed by a neighborhood panel consisting of Pablo Lambinicio (Westwood), Grover Haynes (Lakewood-Seward Park), Catherine Stanford (Downtown); and Cheryl Klinker (Lake City).
Join the Eastlake Community Council at its candidate forum to hear directly from the candidates for City Council and School Board. At 7 p.m. (At TOPS Seward School) we hold the ECC's annual meeting and elections. And then, we're proud to announce that ALL of the City Council and School Board candidates are scheduled to attend.
We invite you to submit questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please identify your name and which candidate you would like the question to be asked of. We cannot guarantee that all submitted questions will be posed to candidates due to tight time constraints.
