Vote: Seattle’s top business stories of 2013 (semi-final round)

Most people would agree that the two most consequential stories for the future of Seattle and the Puget Sound region are the 777X saga and the change at the top coming to Microsoft. Beyond that, the candidates are many.

I’m going to throw out some of the leading contenders for your consideration. On Friday, we’ll vote again on the finalists and rank the most important local stories of the year.

Some elements to consider: The story matters to a large number of people, whether employees or customers; it involves companies or issues of far-reaching repercussions; it is surprising, marking a turning point, or it is so compelling that we can’t fail to pay attention.

What did I miss? Please add your candidates to the comments section and if enough readers agree, it might make it to the finals.

You can vote for as many stories as you wish. But don’t vote if the candidate isn’t strong enough to become a Top 5. Based on this, I’ll be able to winnow down the candidates for Friday:
