You've met the frontrunners in the mayoral race. You're eagerly waiting for your August primary election ballots to come in the mail. You've already prepared to line your birdcages with our endorsement issue (on newsstands July 12—tomorrow). What's a civics nerd to do?
Join the Washington Bus and The Stranger tonight for Candidate Survivor 2017: A Seattle Space Odyssey—duh!
Here's our pitch:
Candidate Survivor is the Biggest, Bestest, and Sexiest Candidate Forum in Seattle (dare we say the universe?).
The Washington Bus, The Stranger, Capitol Hill Block Party, and Neumos are proud to present the fourth-ever Candidate Survivor.
As the August 1st primary draws near, Candidate Survivor will give young Seattleites a fresh look at the top 8-voted mayoral candidates you want to hear from, as voted upon by Stranger readers.
Candidate Survivor gives you the power to decide who stays on stage and who goes. That’s right, the audience will be voting, via text, to determine which mayoral candidate will survive.
There will be music! Food! Candidates
potentially embarrassing themselves! And, most importantly, fellow civically-engaged Seattleites!!!
