Endorsements: 

  • Our Bylaws require a previous appearance by a candidate or representative requesting our endorsement to be considered for endorsement at tonight’s meeting.
  • Candidates qualifying for consideration at tonight’s meeting:
  1. Candidates for King County Auditor:  Lloyd Hara (incumbent) and John Wilson. 
  2. King County Council: Claudia Balducci.
