Primary election candidate forum set for July 24 in Federal Way

Community and youth-led forum will feature city council and school board candidates.

Progress Pushers and Northwest Credible Messengers are holding a candidate forum for the primary election, featuring Federal Way City Council and school board candidates.

Community members are encouraged to join local candidates in a youth-led forum regarding concerns about the future direction of the community.

“See where your favorite candidate stands on issues that matter to young people, people of color and families in our community,” a flyer from the organizations reads in part.

This free forum will take place from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, July 24 at Truman High School located at 31455 28th Ave. S. in Federal Way.

This forum will also be livestreamed on Facebook by PCOMG Media for those who are unable to attend in person.
