Meet county council candidates
Voters have the chance to meet candidates in two Snohomish County Council races from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday in Everett.
The Snohomish County League of Women Voters is sponsoring tonight’s forum in the public meeting rooms of the county’s Robert Drewel Building, 3000 Rockefeller Ave.
Eight candidates have filed to run for the District 2 seat that Councilman Brian Sullivan will be leaving because of term limits. That seat covers the Everett, Mukilteo and Tulalip areas. County Councilwoman Stephanie Wright faces two opponents as she tries for re-election to District 3, covering the Edmonds, Lynnwood and Woodway areas.
The league plans to submit some questions to candidates in advance, but also intends to allow the audience the chance to submit questions. A moderator will ask all questions.
