Who will be Seattle’s next Mayor? And what will they do to make our lives better?
Fifteen candidates are in the race. Some have worked in government for years; others are community activists; others are new to politics. How can a voter sort through all the claims and counterclaims and make an informed choice?
Join the Mayor’s Council on African American Elders (MCAAE) and Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action (PSARA) for a forum with the candidates. The forum will take place via Zoom on Thursday, July 29, at 3:00–4:30 p.m. No registration is required to join the forum. Questions can be submitted in advance via SurveyMonkey.

The MCAAE was established in 1995 by Seattle Mayor Norman B. Rice to advise local government decision-makers on development of services to meet the needs of African American elders. Learn more at Seattle.gov/MCAAE.
PSARA was founded 36 years ago as the Puget Sound Council of Senior Citizens, and works across generations for social justice, dignity, economic security, and a healthy planet for all. Learn more at PSARA.org.
Co-sponsors joining the MCAAE/PSARA event include Age Friendly Seattle, Aging and Disability Services, Seattle Human Services Department, Central Area Senior Center, and South East Seattle Senior Center. None of the sponsoring organizations will make endorsements or recommendations.
We invite all interested people to join us July 29 as we question our mayoral candidates.
Contributor Mike Andrew is executive director of PSARA and editor of The Retiree Advocate.
