The Woodinville City Council met for the first time this month on Tuesday, October 2. After the standard roll call, flag salute, and approval of agenda in order and content, councilmembers moved directly into public comment because there were no special presentations scheduled for the evening.
The Northshore Council PTSA, which is comprised of 31 PTAs at schools throughout the Northshore School District, held a Candidate Forum for candidates in Legislative Districts 1, 45 and 46. The forum was held on the evening of Monday, October 1 at the Northshore School District Administrative Building (3330 Monte Villa Parkway, Bothell, WA).
The candidates were eager to shake hands and converse with the attendees a half hour before the forum began. Many of the night’s guests were students; their notebooks quickly filled with ink and lead as they asked questions, commented, and listened intently to the candidates’ big ideas.
