City Council Candidates "Meet & Greet" With Voters Wednesday Night
YAKIMA, Wash. - Voters have had few opportunities to meet city council candidates in a group and hear them talk about the issues but Wednesday night they will get their chance at the downtown library branch, less than a month away from the August primaries.
Candidate signs have been popping up around Yakima as we get closer to the Aug. 18 "Top Two" primary in Washington state. Four of the seven positions on the council are up this year and the field will be narrowed down in two of those races next month. The other two council races only have two candidates.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. inside the library where the public will get to talk to the candidates individually. Then at 6:30 p.m., each candidate will get two minutes to speak about his or her candidacy.
The downtown branch is located on 102 N. 3rd Street. The League of Women Voters is hosting the "Meet & Greet" event.
