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