Indivisible Tacoma Announces Mayoral and City Council Candidate Forum
Mayoral and Position 6 Candidates to Debate During Free Event Open to the Public
Tacoma, WA: Today, Indivisible Tacoma, a progressive, nonpartisan group dedicated to protecting our nation’s values through resisting the Trump agenda, announced that it will hold a forum for candidates running for Tacoma Mayor and Tacoma City Council At-Large Position 6. The forum will take place July 12, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Tahoma Unitarian Universalist Congregation, located at 1115 S 56th St, Tacoma, WA 98408.
All three Tacoma mayoral candidates (Evelyn Lopez, Jim Merritt, and Victoria Woodards) and four of the five City Council at-large Position 6 candidates (Gregory Christopher, Maria Johnson, Sarah Morken, and Meredith Neal) will debate issues relevant to Tacoma residents. Kellie Richardson, Tacoma’s Poet Laureate, will moderate as the candidates answer questions generated by Indivisible Tacoma and solicited from the public.
Local elected officials are Tacoma residents’ first line of defense against the president’s authoritarian agenda. This forum will provide residents with the opportunity to ask the candidates questions and to discern which candidates will best stand up for their rights and interests.
Ballots for the August 1 primary election will be mailed on July 14. The top-two vote getters will appear on the November 7 general election ballot.
