On Thursday, July 7, 2022, the Kent Chamber of Commerce’s Membership Luncheon featured a Candidate-Community Mixer.

Twenty two candidates running in the Aug. 2 Primary for local and state offices attended, and guests could speak and interact directly with them.

Each candidate was given 1-minute, 30-seconds to speak to chamber members at the event, which we live-streamed on our Facebook page.

King County Elections will be mailing out primary ballots on Wednesday, July 13, and voting opens July 14.

Voters can vote for races for U.S. Senate, the state’s 10 congressional seats, secretary of state, 98 seats in the state House of Representatives, 25 of the 49 seats in the state Senate as well as some local races and ballot measures.

Below is a video shot and edited by Scott Schaefer, which includes clips of all candidates who spoke (running time: 37 minutes, 35 seconds). [NOTE: Candidate and office order is the same as it is on the King County Elections website.]

This event was sponsored by Eight Twenty Eight Consulting.
