Questions for Mayor Mike McGinn and his challengers? Share them with us

ELECTION DAY

WILLIAM BOWEN / OP ART

Sure, it’s summer and the last thing you want to do is think about politics. But it’s time again to do your civic duty. Campaign season is in full swing with a full slate of candidates challenging incumbent Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and incumbents in other races drawing worthy challengers.

Last week, members of The Seattle Times editorial board began interviewing candidates for possible endorsement in Seattle School Board and Metropolitan King County Council races. We’ve also started looking at the Seattle City Council and will be spending some time with McGinn and his challengers. Port of Seattle and Bellevue City Council and School Board are also on our lists.

As I wrote in my Sunday column, we will start publishing our election recommendations this week with the goal of having them completed by the time ballots are mailed out. We will make recommendations in races that have three candidates or more filed. Those races with only two will not appear until the general election ballot. King County elections has posted a list of those races that will be on the ballot.

If you have any questions for the Seattle mayoral candidates or any others, we’d love to hear them. Please leave your suggestions in the comments below.
