Frank Chopp & Kshama Sawant headline tonight’s Community Club political candidate meet-and-greet

Tonight’s Montlake Community Club meeting will feature a short presentation and vote on nominating the elementary school for historic status — followed by a meet-and-greet with more than a dozen candidates running for local office. Scheduled to appear are Frank Chopp and challenger Kshama Sawant and other familiar names.

The forum will allow for questions and short answers to give a sense of how the candidates think — and they have all been warned about neighborhood frustration with the 520 project. No Club endorsements will be made, no insults or rallies allowed, and the throwing of objects is strictly forbidden.

This will be a great chance to show up and discuss the issues important to the neighborhood. More info in this month’s Flyer.

  1. Landmarking the school is bad for Montlake. Families (including mine) live in the area because Montlake school provides a great education. Everyone knows the district is trying to shut the school down because the facility needs work. Giving the school landmark status makes it much less likely that the school can be updated and saved. If the school is shut down, young families will no longer choose Montlake over other neighborhoods. This would hurt the community and property values.
