The Seattle Times editorial board has grilled eight Seattle mayor candidates (Hello, Doug McQuaid, are you out there?).
Now we want to hear from you, before we decide which one to recommend to voters.
What experience and skills you want in a mayor? What needs fixing in Seattle? Who has the best plan? What are they not talking about that they should? Who doesn’t love Charlie Staadecker’s bow ties?
Voters will kick seven of them off the island on August 6, leaving two for the November general election. The candidates are Seattle City Councilmember Bruce Harrell, designer Kate Martin, socialist Mary Martin, current Mayor Mike McGinn, Doug McQuaid (we never met him), State Sen. Ed Murray, real estate broker Charlie Staadecker and former Seattle City Councilmember Peter Steinbrueck.
