FacetofaceA panel of GSBA members representing the breadth of our organization will be posing questions to candidates for some of the most important races in our region, including Mayor, Seattle City Council, and Port Commission.

Hear where our future leaders stand on issues of importance to the LGBT community, small business, and equitable economic development for all communities.

What is their vision for supporting the LGBT community, which makes up an estimated 14% of Seattle's population?

How will they bring equity to the parts of our community who need it most?

Do they understand the needs of small businesses in America's fastest growing city?
