Most quality of life issues are decided at the local level, but races for these positions do not always get the attention that they deserve. There is a great group of out LGBTQ candidates running for local office across Washington State, including city and county councilmembers and special districts. There are experienced veterans and first-time candidates. All of them are hoping to bringing their visions to improve their communities.
 
Confirmed panelists include:
Kali Clark, candidate for Sammamish City Council
Dontae Payne, candidate for Olympia City Council
Carmen Rivera, candidate for Renton City Council
Dave Upthegrove, King County Councilmember
Zack Zappone, candidate for Spokane City Council
