The Ravenna-Bryant Community Association is proud to participate as a co-host alongside Hawthorne Hills, View Ride and Laurelhurst Community Councils for the first-ever Seattle District 4 event. Incumbent Councilmember Jean Godden has four official challengers.
To refresh, in 2013 Seattle voters overwhelmingly approved dividing the city into 7 Districts (D1-D7) with one City Council representative each, plus two additional at-large Councilmembers (D8 & D9.) More on the Districts can be found here. The Ravenna and Bryant neighborhoods are in District 4, which encompasses NE Seattle south of 85th, roughly east of Interstate-5, and to the Montlake cut with the addition of Eastlake. Here’s a map:
The top-two primary will be this August and the general election the first Tuesday in November, as always, but instead of voting for 9 Councilmembers as we have in the past, D4 members will be registered to vote only for their preferred D4 candidate and the two at-large positions. So educate yourself and attend next week’s event.
The format will be a debate followed by moderated Q&A period. Attendees will be able to submit questions in writing at the beginning of the event, prior to the debate portion. After the debate, moderator Nancy Bolin will call on the people who submitted questions and allow those people to ask their questions of the candidates themselves.
