REMINDER:The first B-Town Blog Burien City Council Candidate Forum will be this TUESDAY, Sept. 26 at El Dorado West Retirement Community, located at 1010 SW 134th Street (map below):

  • 6 p.m.: Doors open
  • 6:30 p.m.: Meet & Greet
  • 7 p.m.: Forum starts 

This first forum will feature candidates for Positions 1 and 3:

  • Joel Manning vs. Pedro Olguin
  • Jimmy Matta vs. Debi Wagner

This year our Moderator will be David Ruby, a Civics teacher at Highline High School. He will ask relevant local issue questions, which we will write and choose from Readers.

Since we first starting holding forums in 2010, our goal has been to provide an independent, fair, civil and safe event to allow residents to meet and hear from candidates, as well as for candidates to have a place to share their thoughts/opinions on relevant local issues with residents.

This will be our fifth election year of providing these forums as a goodwill service to the community, and we have striven to ensure that they have all been fair, successful and helpful to voters (watch videos of some of our previous candidate forums here).

We are simplifying the format this year, so there will be no audience questions asked live at these events; however, we are asking our Readers to submit questions in advance (email [email protected]), which we will review prior to the forum.

It is our intention that each forum will be broadcast live on our Facebook page, as well as video and audio recorded for later playback/posting on our website, which so far in 2017 has been averaging over 102,000 Sessions and 375,000 Pageviews per month (as per Google Analytics).

Our forums have historically been very well attended, and we are certain that this year’s will be as well – get there early, as once the room is filled to capacity (110), the doors will be shut.

El Dorado West is located at 1010 SW 134th Street (with plenty of additional parking on the north side):

SHOUTOUT: Super awesomesauce THANKS to Katalia Alexander for helping to organize these, as well as to all the Candidates and our host locations!

Thanks in advance for your cooperation, and good luck to all!
