October Candidate Forum

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

We are excited for our city council candidate forum on October 4 with Joy Hollingsworth and Alex Hudson. The city council approves and influences the mayor’s budget, think parks and road maintenance or health and safety efforts, and develops or approves laws and regulations, such as zoning and building codes, which directly affect our neighborhood.

This is your opportunity to hear directly from the candidates on issues you care about. While we will have questions for them on topics most Seattle residents care about, we will ask them through a Leschi lens.

We plan on addressing homelessness, affordable housing development and gentrification, public safety, and parks maintenance, and explore the candidates’ stance on how to raise revenue to fund all these efforts. We will also entertain follow-up questions from the audience.

If you want to make sure to get your specific questions addressed, please send them to

October 4, 7pm at Grace United Methodist Church, 722 30th Ave S in lower hall.
