In June, Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, the Move All Seattle Sustainably (MASS) Coalition, and allies hosted two candidate forums focusing on transportation, equity, and the environment, both moderated by Erica C. Barnett.
See the recordings and transcripts below to learn more about candidates positions on key issues, and remember to vote! The primary election is August 3, 2021, so look out for ballots in the mail by mid July.
The first forum educated voters about candidates for Mayor of Seattle Jessyn Farrell, Lorena González, Bruce Harrell, Andrew Grant Houston and Lance Randall. Colleen Echohawk and Casey Sixkiller were unable to attend.
