Equity on the Ballot

Below, find candidate responses to KCEN's questionnaires where we asked potential electeds to detail their policy specific to the Black community. August 3, 2021 is Primary Election Day in Seattle, Washington. Ballots have been sent out. You can now cast your votes.

At KCEN, we focused on four race types: (i) King County Executive, (ii) King County Council, (ii) Seattle Mayor, and (iv) Seattle City Council. Over the coming weeks and months, we'll be releasing select profiles to dig deeper into the people running and their potential impact on this region and Black folks especially.

In total, we asked five questions, all focused on the local Black community. Questions spanned from Black education to health, from land-acquisition to closing the Black-white wealth divide. Candidates not included did not provide any answers.
