Magnolia/Queen Anne: ‘Embrace And Accept The Future That Is Going To Happen’

KUOW Illustration/Kara McDermott

For the first time in a century, Seattle voters will choose their City Council members by district. In District 7, which includes Magnolia, Queen Anne and downtown, three candidates are running.

We asked the candidates to meet us somewhere in their district that signified why they’re running.

Current Councilmember Sally Bagshaw chose Seattle Center’s new playground because she wants to create places like parks where people can gather.

Gus Hartmann chose a South Lake Union coffeehouse because he says that area is a good example of how  the city has grown.

Deborah Zech-Artis chose Pike Place Market because she wants to make sure it is maintained.

Primary ballots drop on Friday, July 10, and are due by Tuesday, Aug. 4. Two candidates from each district will go on to the general election in November.
