WEDNESDAY: Rainier Valley Residents to Moderate Networking Event With City Council Candidates; What Do YOU Want to Know?

Aerial of Rainier Valley, 2001Election season is upon us, and this year we will elect five City Council members to represent our interests, so on Wed., June 22, the Rainier Chamber of Commerce will co-host a Speed Campaigning Luncheon with the West Seattle Chamber from 11:30 am to 1 pm  at 4025 Delridge Way SW in West Seattle.

Three south-end neighbors, including State Farm representative Jeffrey Taylor, recently retired Windermere representative Brian Fairchild and RVP editor Amber Campbell will be there to help moderate the discussion and see that the candidates are aware of the issues that matter most to Rainier Valley residents.

Make your voice heard: What do you want to know from this year’s candidates for City Council? What are the issues that matter most to you? Schools? Crime? Jobs? The environment? Economic Development? Something else? Use the comment section below to post your questions.

Tickets to Wednesday’s luncheon are $25 and space is limited, so please call the Chamber at 932-5685 to reserve your spot. Lunch will be provided by Blue Willow Catering.
