A Dialogue with Candidates for Seattle City Attorney
featuring City Attorney Tom Carr and Challenger Pete Holmes

How should the Law Department establish its priorities? What qualities are important for a City Attorney who under the City’s Charter has full supervisory control of all city litigation? How can the City Attorney serve the Mayor, the Council and citizens at the same time? What are the key issues that will allow voters to distinguish between the candidates for this important office? The May Federation meeting presents an opportunity for you to learn about the candidates and the key issues that will allow you and to select the person that best addresses the concerns of your community.

The May meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood. It is your opportunity to brief our citywide membership about what you are working on and to share perceptions on what is going right and what isn’t with our city government. Don’t forget, it is time to renew your Federation dues!
