Municipal League looking for volunteers to review candidates for public office

Volunteers needed to evaluate candidates for coming elections

The Municipal League of King County is currently seeking volunteers to help research, interview and ultimately rate candidates running for public office in the upcoming 2014 election cycle.

The League is covering a number of races in King County, including races in the ​5th, 41st, 45th and 48th districts. The schedule is somewhat flexible, as there are a number of committee dates and times to choose from. But for people interested in ​ East King County, it is recommend people join the committee meeting in Bellevue.

The candidate reviews will take place over three Saturdays in June.

This is a great opportunity for people who are new to the region, people who are interested in learning more about their representatives, and/or people who are interested in running for office someday.

But time is almost up to register, as candidate interviews start in June.

For more information and how to register, visit, or email, or call 206 622-8333.
