This past Wednesday, October 7th, city councilmember Bruce Harrell debated food policy analyst Tammy Morales in Seattle City Council’s District 2 Candidates Forum.
November’s city council election, which sees all nine council seats up for grabs, will be the first time city representatives are determined by geographic location.
Both Harrell and Morales seek to become District 2’s first representative. The district is commonly referred to as the “South District” as it encompasses a majority of the South End.
The event , which took place at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center in Columbia City, was co-moderated by Marcus Harrison Green, editor-in-chief of the South Seattle Emerald, Michael Wolfe, board member of the Rainier Chamber of Commerce, Rebecca Saldana, executive director of Puget Sound Sage, and Benjamin Hunter, founder of Community Arts Create.
