A laundry list of things (mostly) political + Capitol Hill, Seattle.
- Hughes for Congress campaign kick-off: The party starts at Vermillion tonight. We met the young challenger to Jim McDermott for a seat in congress at Kaladi Brothers back in May.
The Andrew Hughes for Congress Campaign is hosting “A Spirited Start” campaign kick-off TONIGHT. The Hughes Campaign is inviting its supporters to celebrate the bright future of the 7th Congressional District and toss back some fresh ideas with their future congressman.
When: Tuesday, June 26th, 6:30PM – 10:30PM
Where: Vermillion – Art Gallery | Wine Bar on Capitol Hill
1508 11th Ave (between Pike St. & Pine St) Seattle
Vermillion Art Gallery is a refined, urban, contemporary venue described by The Stranger as “a place that possesses the massive virtue of being wonderful without trying too hard.”
The Hughes Campaign will provide beer, wine and food, with free booze for all members of the press! Top local jazz superstars Ryan Burns Trio will be performing followed by DJ Kid Charlemagne
- Jay Inslee Capitol Hill Street Party: It’ll cost you $100 to party with the guberanatorial candidate in the Melrose Studios facility Wednesday night.
- Library Bond Pro and Con: A CHS community post shares the pro and con discussions over the upcoming library bond held at a recent meeting of the East District Council.
- TimeBanking: Not necessarily political but would certainly be a shock to the system:
You can help establish a timebank that allows neighbors to exchange services and receive services from other members of the timebank. Timebanks are successfully running across the nation and around the world. New software innovations and experience by local community members make it scalable with minimum administration, so we can focus on helping one another.
