Screen Shot 2013-06-01 at 4.12.45 PM Monday night, the 2013 Seattle mayor’s race turns its attention to the arts with a forum at First Hill’s Town Hall Seattle.

CHS’s most recent Election 2013 coverage – including an endorsement for candidate Ed Murray in our 43rd Legislative District – is here.

Hopefully somebody asks the candidates about the planned Capitol Hill arts district Monday night.

Seattle Cultural Community 2013 Mayoral Forum

Monday, June 3, 2013, 7:30 – 9:00pm

Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. Free, but reservations suggested.

KUOW Weekday host Steve Scher moderates an in-depth discussion among seven of Seattle’s 2013 mayoral candidates on the current state—and future—of Seattle’s cultural community, and how its health relates to our city’s economic vitality. Participating candidates include City Councilmember Bruce Harrell, a former corporate attorney; Greenwood neighborhood activist Kate Martin; Socialist Workers Party candidate Mary J. Martin; incumbent Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn; State Sen. Edward B. Murray; businessman and arts patron Charlie Staadecker; and architect Peter Steinbrueck, a former City Council member. Presented by the Seattle Cultural Community and Town Hall as part of the Town Hall Civics series. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
