What do you want to hear from the Seattle Mayor candidates?
Before Seattle City Council member Tim Burgess suddenly dropped out of the Mayor’s race, he mostly stuck to his core issues of Seattle Police reforms, better public schools and road maintenance. He led the field in fundraising, but he fared badly in several recent endorsements, including the King County Young Democrats and the 46th Legislative District Democrats.
The most recent SurveyUSA/King5 poll (which doesn’t include late filers) shows the nine-candidate field as a four-way race, with Mayor Mike McGinn (22%), ex-city council member Peter Steinbrueck (17%), state Sen. Ed Murray (15%) and city council member Bruce Harrell (12%) all being beaten by Undecided (23%).
With 75 days until the primary, what do you want to hear from the candidate (list, contacts and fundraising reports here)? Pick your top three.
