This Ain't Cuba! B-Town Blog Sponsors Candidates Forum April 27 In Burien!
There have been some great, classic Candidate Debates in political history:
- Lincoln-Douglas 1860
- Kennedy-Nixon 1960
- Carter-Reagan 1980
- Carlson-Locke 2000 (Carlson-Locke? Well, anyway…)
Yes, our fellow Americans, you heard read it here first. You read it here because we â€“ your neighborhood journalistic watchdog and deliverer of digital facts, The B-Town Blog – is pleased to announce that we’ll be hosting a gathering of the four announced candidates for 34th District State Representative, Position 2.
Itâ€™ll be held Tuesday, April 27, from 7pm to 8:30pm at the Highline Performing Arts Center, next door to Highline High School on SW 152nd in Burien.
Weâ€™re expecting a big turnout and a lot of energy at this event. Since no incumbent is running (current State Representative Sharon Nelson is running for the Senate this go-round) this is the first open seat for Position 2 in quite a while.
In alphabetical order by last name, here are the four candidates you get to grill:
The source of most of the questions to be asked will be YOU, the curious and informed citizen. Yep, you can ask whatever you want. No kidding. This event is open to everyone and there is, of course, no cover charge.
Remember, one of the four candidates youâ€™ll meet April 27 will go on to become your new representative in Olympia in January. So let them know whatâ€™s on your mind! Bring your neighbor. Bring your friend. Bring your vote-canceling spouse!
The primary is set for August 17. The two candidates with the highest number of votes move on to duke it out in the General Election, set for November 2. Weâ€™ll be covering that for you, too.
As the big day gets closer, we’ll be announcing more info on the format, so be sure to stay tuned (you can subscribe to our RSS Feed here).
Arenâ€™t you glad you donâ€™t live in North Korea or Cuba? Nights like April 27 just donâ€™t happen often in those parts.
