Candidates’ Forum

An Affordable Housing Breakfast

September 10, 2015 


Our elected officials are so important to what we do. They make laws, levy taxes, and in a myriad of other ways interpret the hopes and dreams of all of us to create the kind of community we want.

Join us for breakfast and an opportunity to meet candidates for Snohomish County Executive, Snohomish County Council and Everett City Council. Hear about their goals and their positions on issues facing the County and the City. Questions will be accepted from audience members and asked by the event moderator, Fred Safstrom of Housing Hope.

This Candidates’ Forum is a non-partisan educational event co-hosted by the Housing Consortium of Everett & Snohomish County and the YWCA Seattle King Snohomish.
There will be time for questions from the audience about issues that are important to you.

The Consortium is very pleased to welcome JP Morgan Chase as our 2015-16 Affordable Housing Breakfast Forum Series sponsor. Thank you, Chase!
