King County Democrats to hold forum with county executive hopefuls on May 5th

Interested in getting to know some of the people who are running for King County Executive a little better? Well, here's your chance.

In just three weeks, the King County Dermocrats will be holding a forum with at least three of the confirmed candidates for county executive: Dow Constantine, Larry Phillips, and Fred Jarrett. The candidates will speak briefly about why they're running, take audience questions, and then give concluding remarks.

The event is free and open to the public, and will be moderated by yours truly. I'm looking forward to it, and I hope to have the pleasure of seeing many NPI Advocate readers and NPI supporters there.

I'm not sure if Republican Susan Hutchinson (the fourth declared candidate) plans to show up, but I would guess she's welcome to. If I were her, I'd relish a chance to square off against three Democrats in a hall full of Democrats. Why? Because learning how to be an effective leader means not passing up opportunities to show up in front of hostile crowds as well as friendly ones.

King County Executive Candidate Forum
Renton Carpenters Hall (231 Burnett Avenue N, Renton, WA, 98057)
May 5th, 2009, 7:30 PM (social hour begins at 6:30 PM)
