Washington State Wire and The Nature Conservancy in Washington are hosting a virtual debate with candidates for the 10th Congressional District seat in the House of Representatives.
The event is free and open to the public – residence in the 10th District is not required, but advance registration is. The debate follows a nonpartisan and impartial format, with candidates given equal time to respond to a set of screened questions on climate change, environmental policy priories, economic policy, and social justice.
Date: Wednesday, July 1, 2020
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 PM PST
The candidates above were selected to participate based on their fundraising totals reported in the most recent FEC filings.
Washington’s 10th Congressional District covers the shores of South Puget Sound and includes portions of Thurston, Pierce and Mason Counties. Stretching from Capitol Forest to the foothills of Mt. Rainier and the Puyallup River, the district includes Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the city of Olympia, part of Tacoma, suburbs and rural communities such as Yelm and Shelton. The candidate who fills this open seat will have a significant impact beyond the borders of the district as a key member of Washington state’s 12-member Congressional delegation.
We’d love for you to join us for this learning opportunity.
