Want to engage with one of the leading Democratic candidates for President of the United States? Here’s your chance! Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is bringing her burgeoning presidential campaign to the Pacific Northwest this weekend. Her campaign has announced that the centerpiece of the trip will be a Sunday afternoon town hall in downtown Seattle at the WaMu Theater.
The event is free to attend, but registration is requested.
Here are the details:
Seattle Town Hall with Elizabeth Warren
Sunday, August 25, 2019
800 Occidental Ave S
Seattle, WA 98134
Doors open at 12:15 PM. Event starts at 2:15 PM.
Warren is the third Democratic contender to visit Seattle (not counting Washington State Governor Jay Inslee, who calls Cascadia home). Vice President Joe Biden had a couple of closed door fundraisers here a few months ago, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg held a fundraiser at The Showbox a few weeks ago.
Neither Biden nor Buttigieg held events that were free to attend.
Warren’s town hall, on the other hand, does not have an admission fee. Warren says her objective is to run a grassroots-oriented campaign that is powered by people instead of armies of lobbyists and the welathy interests they work for.
NPI is planning to cover the town hall here on The Cascadia Advocate as well as In Brief. If you go, pack your patience, as lines could be long.
