King County Council Candidates Forum – Inspire Washington

September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Hosted by Inspire Washington, the statewide cultural advocacy organization, this forum is an opportunity to expose King Country Council candidates to the reality of our local cultural sector’s struggles. It also gives you a chance to hear each candidate’s cultural platform so that you can decide who will get your vote in November.

Positions and candidates up for election:

  • D2 (includes Skyway and parts of Tukwila): Girmay Zahilay
  • D4: Jorge Baron & Sarah Reyneveld
  • D6: Claudia Balducci
  • D8: (includes Burien, White Center and parts of Tukwila) Teresa Mosqueda & Sofia Aragon

Inspire Washington has identified district captains who have formed teams of a diverse array of cultural leaders to focus on specific needs, areas for growth, and threat mitigation. (Thank you, team captains!) These teams will be crafting the questions that will be asked of the candidates; however, there will also be opportunity for the audience to ask impromptu questions.

The forums will feature performances from local artists between moderated sessions with the candidates. The forum will take place at Town Hall in downtown Seattle (1119 8th Avenue), and in-person audience participation is encouraged, but all events will be live-streamed by Town Hall and broadcast by the Seattle Channel. The venue is ADA accessible, and the event will be close captioned.
