REMINDER: Will Fitzgibbon & Heavey Pick Bones With Each Other Tuesday?
REMINDER: The B-Town Blog is hosting our fourth Candidates Debate Tuesday, Oct. 12th, from 7pm – 8:10pm, featuring the two candidates running for the State House of Representatives, 34th District, Position 2 – Joe Fitzgibbon vs Mike Heavey.
Will each have a bone to pick with the other?
The seat is currently held by Sharon Nelson, who is running unopposed for the State Senate.
The 34th District covers West Seattle, White Center, Burien, and Maury and Vashon Islands.
This race represents one of the few times in recent history where a 34th District general election race for the State Legislature does not include an incumbent.
Fitzgibbon garnered about 500 more votes than did Heavey in the August primary, out of approx. 27,000 votes cast for the four candidates running at the time.
The event will be moderated by Dr. T.M. Sell, who teaches Political Science and Journalism at nearby Highline Community College. One of the panelists will be Susan Kelleher, Pulitzer Prize-winning Reporter for The Seattle Times.
The debate will be held at the ERAC, a Highline School District Building located at 15675 Ambaum Blvd SW, across from the Azteca Restaurant on Ambaum Blvd. in Burien.
This is the fourth Candidates Forum/Debate to be sponsored by The B-Town Blog this campaign season. Two of them, featuring candidates for the State House of Representatives and King County Council, were moderated by John Carlson of KOMO-AM and Dave Ross of KIRO-FM.
The debate format will consist of three Journalists asking questions for the first half or so with questions then coming from the public. There is no cover charge and anyone and everyone is welcome to attend.
Ballots start arriving in voters’ mailboxes later this week.
