Grassroots organization Auburn WA Flip Congressional District 8 will host a candidate forum for three candidates running to fill retiring Congressman Dave Reichert’s seat. The event will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Friday, March 16, at the William C. Warren Building at 405 E. Street NE in Auburn. It will also be streamed online for those who cannot attend.
The moderator-led forum will feature 8th Congressional District Democratic candidates Dr. Shannon Hader, Brayden Olson, Jason Rittereiser, and Dr. Kim Schrier in a roundtable format. The candidates will identify their ties to the district, discuss their stances on key issues affecting district residents, and share their vision as to how they could best serve this diverse region in Congress.
An opportunity for the audience to meet and greet the participants will directly follow the forum, and the organization will send an informal SurveyMonkey survey to attendees after the event.
“Right now we face critical challenges to our privacy, welfare, and success,” said James Jeyaraj, founder of the Auburn WA Flip Congressional District 8 group. “Now more than ever we elect a candidate with experience, vision, and strength who embodies the values and priorities of everyday Washingtonians and who won’t sacrifice everyday Americans to improve corporate bottom lines.”
