There are currently 58 candidates for Seattle City Council.
Are you overwhelmed, and looking for a candidate in your district that aligns with your values? Look no further!
SNG, the MASS Coalition, and allies are hosting candidate forums in five of the seven Seattle City Council districts this month. We'll hear from candidates as they answer questions about the biggest issues facing our city: transportation, housing, reducing carbon emissions, and equity. All forums are wheelchair-accessible and CART services will be provided:
If you miss the forum or if you live in District 1 (West Seattle and South Park) or District 5 (North Seattle), keep a lookout for candidate questionnaires! You'll be able to read what candidates in your district have to say about these important issues.
