Reddit Seattle moderator careless explained that Reddit reached out to Murray previously:
FYI everyone; when Charlie Staadecker asked the mod team about doing an IAmA interview on /r/Seattle, I emailed each and every other candidate, inviting them to do the same, in the interest of providing equal access to all candidates.
I agree with you, I would like to see Ed Murray do an IAmA as well; just thought I'd point out that they were invited a while ago. My recommendation? Email their team at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call them at (206) 569-8337 or Tweet at them, or hit them up on the Book of Faces.
Reddit user SD70MACMAN adds:
When I did this, McGinn's staff got back to me within 20 minutes to get the ball rolling. I still haven't received a reply from Murray. Kind of a bummer.
Everyone should start emailing Murray to encourage him to come aboard for an AMA!
And Reddit user g00f speculates that McGinn's mention that Murray received a large donation from Comcast might have scared him away from Reddit's tech-savvy audience:
After that comment regarding comcast donations in McGuinn's AMA, I doubt the dude wants any sort of appearances on the interwebs...
If Murray eventually decides to do an AMA, we'll let you know here on Slog.
