Seattle mayoral forum: 'I'm going to alienate somebody with my answer'

Oct 23, 2017

Former U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan and urbanist Cary Moon have some really sharp differences. Take their feelings on Beecher's cheese and the Eagles, for instance.

They met for a mayor's candidate forum at the Phinney Neighborhood Association hosted by KUOW reporters David Hyde and Amy Radil.

Kim Malcolm spoke with Hyde about a few highlights, including the lightning round, when the candidates were asked to hold up signs that either said "underrated" or "overrated."  

Here's how they responded:  

Amazon | Both: Overrated

Ballard | Both: Underrated

Beecher's Handmade Cheese | Durkan: Underrated. Moon: “Overrated”

Bicycles| Durkan: Underrated and Overrated. Cary: Underrated

Cars | Both: Overrated

Chamber of Commerce | Both: Overrated

Socialist Alternative Party | Durkan: Overrated. Moon: Underrated

Hillary Clinton | Both: Underrated

Bernie Sanders | Both: Underrated

Smart growth | Both: Underrated

The Eagles | Durkan: Underrated. Moon: Overrated

Free on-street parking | Durkan: Underrated. Moon: Overrated
