Yes, No, or Waffle. The candidates (Shannon Braddock, Chas Redmond, Lisa Herbold, Tom Koch, Philip Tavel, and Brianna Thomas)each raise their answer during the "paddle session" of the forum.

Summary and highlights from the 34th District Democrats Candidate Forum

On April 8 the 34th District Democrats held a candidate’s forum to select the candidate that they will endorsed to represent West Seattle and South Park in the Seattle City Council. The endorsement vote for the 34th District Dems will be held on May 20.

The auditorium at the Fauntleroy Hall was filled to its maximum capacity by members and supporters, with guests such as King County Executive Dow Constantine and King County Councilmember Joe McDermott in attendance. Chair of the Executive Board Marcee Stone-Vekich moderated the Q&A and managed to keep the proceedings moving at a fast pace.

Each candidate was given one minute to answer each question.
Shannon Braddock, Chas Redmond, Lisa Herbold, Tom Koch, Philip Tavel, and Brianna Thomas were the six candidates who participated. Amanda Kay Helmick had been scheduled to appear but was unable to participate since she is running as an independent and would not declare herself a democrat, a requirement per the 34 DD’s bi-laws.

Providence Mt. St. Vincent will hold a celebration in naming of William Pigott Chapel April 26

Providence Mount St. Vincent is inviting the public to attend a mass to celebrate the naming of its chapel in honor of William Pigott's visionary commitment, legacy of faith, service and sacrificial giving.

The mass will begin at 11 a.m. on April 26, 2015 in the chapel at Providence Mount St. Vincent, 4831 35th Ave. SW, Seattle. The Very Reverend Paul Magnano will preside. The event will honor William Pigott and Ann P. Wyckoff, long-time supporters of Providence Mount St. Vincent. "It's an honor to continue my grandfather's legacy," Wyckoff said about naming the William Pigott Chapel in honor of her grandfather.

In 1924, Pigott and five other lead donors partnered with the Sisters of Providence to raise the needed funds to build St. Vincent Home for the Aged, today called Providence Mount St. Vincent. Together they held the vision that a just society must plan for and provide care for its elders. The building was dedicated on April 26, 1924.
