Tonight!: The Stranger’s Great City Council Debate

Posted by on September 7 at 22:49 PM

Attention fans of democracy and Robert’s Rules of Order: Tonight at the Broadway Performance Hall, join your hosts Dan Savage, Josh Feit, and Erica C. Barnett for The Stranger’s Great City Council Debate.

Gracing the stage will be every single City Council candidate, challenger and incumbent, each of whom will face a grueling gauntlet of Q&A on the primary season’s hot topics, from transportation and density issues to strip laws and the smoking ban. Find out why Richard Conlin has always hated the monorail and Jan Drago has always loved dog runs. Learn which candidates’ voter’s guide claims are true and which aren’t. Discover which contenders come best equipped to stand up to the mayor. See Richard McIver, live, in person!

Truly, it will be a civics-issue smackdown of unprecedented proportions. The show commences tonight at 6:30 pm at the Broadway Performance Hall (1625 Broadway). Admission is free. See you there.

P.S. If you require confirmation from an outside source, here’s the Seattle Times blurb on the debate:

A bong and a stripper were two of the surprises Seattle City Council candidates encountered at an election debate sponsored by The Stranger in 2003. The alternative weekly newspaper presents another “Great City Council Debate” on Wednesday at Broadway Performance Hall, 1625 Broadway. The event is free and starts at 6:30 p.m.
