Tonight: Candidate Forum @ Neumo’s

Posted by on June 29 at 11:13 AM

Dave Meinert has organized an important city council candidate forum that will zoom in on how city rules & regs affect the music community. The idea is to suss out where the candidates stand on these issues. Care about the music scene? You should care about who’s on city council. Audience will get to ask questions, and there’s a meet and greet with the candidates afterwards.

This Wednesday, June 29 The Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Recording Academy® along with several community partners Hosts a Seattle City Council Candidates Forum For the Music Community at Neumo’s on Capitol Hill starting at 6:00 pm.  ALL AGES!

Council Candidates attending will include Richard Conlin, Darlene Madenwald, Nick Licata, Ángel Bolanos, Robert Rosencrantz, Linda Averill, Dwight Pelz, Casey Corr, Jan Drago, Linda Averill, Richard McIver.   Candidates not showing up, so obviously not caring about the music community, include Paige Miller (aka the next Margaret Paigler) and Mike Thompson.

The Recording Academy presents this forum as a non-partisan event designed to engage the music community and city politicians on music related issues before this fall’s important election. A panel of community leaders (Josh Feit, Glenn Lorbecki and Kate Becker) will ask both prepared questions and questions will also be taken from the audience. The intent is to give all candidates running for city council a platform in which to have a dialogue with their our community. This forum will be all ages, free and open to the public.

Following the forum, there will be a reception where you can talk to the candidates one on one.

WHERE:  Neumo’s 925 East Pike St.
