North District Council, Lake City Neighborhood Alliance, and Meadowbrook Community Council are pleased to welcome community members to a Seattle City Council District 5 Candidate Forum Monday, May 18, 2015. The forum will be held at Jane Addams Middle School Auditorium located at 11051 34th Avenue NE, Seattle, WA 98125. Doors will open at 6 P.M. The event begins at 6:45 p.m. and will end by 8:45 p.m.
Candidates who have announced for District 5 and who will be at the forum are Sandy Brown, Debadutta Dash, Mercedes Elizalde, Debora Juarez, Mian Rice, David Toledo, and Halei Watkins. This will be a great opportunity to hear the seven candidates talk about issues important to District 5 as well as to the entire city. The organizing committee has crafted some great questions for the candidates, but additional questions can be submitted in writing at the forum.
Our city council has just been reorganized into districts plus two at-large positions. Our district happens to be a wide-open seat (no incumbent) so the primary election is very important. This is an opportunity to find out about the candidates' positions on issues that affect all of us.
