REMINDER: KIRO’s Dave Ross To Moderate Our Candidates Forum Tuesday
We are pleased to remind our readers of our next Candidates Forum, featuring the contenders vying for Dow Constantine’s former seat on the King County Council.
It will be this Tuesday, July 20, from 7pm to 8:45pm at the Highline School District’s E.R.A.C. Building, 15675 Ambaum Blvd. S.W. in south Burien, across the street from Azteca Restaurant and just north of Hi-Line Lanes.
Moderator for the evening will be longtime local reporter and radio talk show host Dave Ross. Ross’s show airs 9am to noon Monday through Friday on 97.3 KIRO-FM.
All four candidates for the seat have been invited and all four have agreed to attend.
- Diana Toledo, former King County employee.
- Shawn McEvoy, former Normandy Park mayor and current Normandy Park city council member.
- Joe McDermott, current 34th district state senator.
- Tim Fahey, professional carpenter and South Park resident.
The forum format is to have area journalists ask questions for the first 45 minutes or so, followed by questions from the public. There is no admission charge and anyone and everyone is welcome to attend.
The 8th District council seat everyone is duking it out for is currently held by Jan Drago. Drago is not running for election.
The primary is August 17. Mail-in ballots will be sent to voters later this month. The two candidates garnering the most votes advance to the general election in November.
