Seattle has many words for rain.
I encourage all of you to utilize the Beaufort Rain Scale where at any time the term to use could be Force 1: Scotch Mist; Presence of wet in the air, hovering rather than falling. You can feel damp on your face. But if you supinate your hand, nothing lands on it.
Associated Phrase: "I think it's trying to rain." (P.Meek)
"It's a candidate forum, but it's super different than other candidate forums..."
On July 16th, 2013, the Washington Bus, the Stranger, and the Showbox at the Market hosted the largest candidate forum in Seattle history for the Seattle Mayoral Primary Election. 750 young (and a few young at heart) Seattlites packed the room to hear from the crew duking it out to be Seattle's next Mayor.
Candidate Survivor takes the best part of a candidate forum (critical policy questions, people power, a smorgasbord of candidates) and blends it with the best parts of life (talent shows, witty panelists, dance parties). To cap it off, three times through the night the live audience votes (via text message) for the winner leaving one final Candidate Survivor. Check out the video to watch how it all went down and discover the illustrious winner.
