Races: 41st District Senate and House, Superintendent of Public Instruction
Hosted by League of Women Voters of Seattle-King County
The format will be that each candidate will make a short opening statement. Then each candidate for a specific race will be asked questions (the same question for each). Then there will be questions from the audience, and finally an opportunity for the candidates to make a short closing statement.
The order of the races is: 1) OSPI; 2) 41st District House; 3) 41st District Senate
Come meet your candidates including Judy Clibborn and Michael Appleby. Listen to them explain their positions on important issues including the #405ETL. Arrive early and talk with them one-on-one during the meet and greet period. Judy is currently the chair of the House Transportation Committee, an avid supporter of the tolls, and the one person blocking their removal. This will be a great opportunity to tell her in person how you feel about the tolls. Ask why she wants to remove the carpool lane and create 2 toll lanes and add no new general purpose lanes through Renton. Or why she won’t support 2 person carpools.
Be sure to share this with your friends and neighbors in your district.
