REMINDER:The final B-Town Blog Burien City Council Candidate Forum will be this TUESDAY, Oct. 3 at Merrill Gardens at Burien, located at 15020 5th Ave SW near Town Square (map below), starting at 7 p.m.

This final forum will feature the candidates for Positions 5 and 7:

  • Darla Green vs. Nancy Tosta
  • Patty Janssen vs. Krystal Marx

Here’s the schedule:

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

Our Moderator again will be David Ruby, a Civics teacher at Highline High School. He will ask relevant local issue questions, which we will write, as well choose from Readers.

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT QUESTIONS IS 6 p.m. TODAY (Monday, Oct. 2)!
The deadline for Readers to submit questions for consideration for our final forum is TODAY – Monday, Oct. 2, at 6 p.m. To submit, email your question(s) to [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 – get there early, as once the room is filled to capacity (146), the doors will be shut. We hope to be able to provide a live Facebook feed on a monitor in the lobby for overflow attendees.

Merrill Gardens at Burien is located at 15020 5th Ave SW:

    Scott & team: thanks so much for making these forums happen. It was a ton of work for you, but they have given us an invaluable side-by-side comparison of candidates on topics that really matter. Different questions were asked in the two forums: Do you have any plans to give the candidates the questions they were not asked in their forum and invite them to respond on the blog and/or Facebook? I would love to read everyone’s response to every question.
