County Executive Candidates Invited to Speak with NAACP and Community Members
Audio recording of the forum

This past saturday we celebrated our 23rd Anniversary Nubian Jam at Forest Park in Washington. Throughout the day I heard stories of patrons who talked about the excitement, and community that the Nubian Jam brings to the Snohomish County each year. People talk about how "the Nubian Jam was the reason they stayed in Washington" and that " they look forward to the Nubian Jam each year" because they see family and friends they haven't seen in ages.

This is the community that we in the NAACP of Snohomish County are working to strengthen. It is our duty as an organization to ensure that people of all colors are treated fairly and equally by institutions of this great county.

As you may know our elected officials are the primary representatives of the people they serve. We are currently coming up on the deadline (Aug. 4th) to submit your vote for the County Executive position currently up for election. As a result we have extended an invitation to ALL of the currently running candidates for the position. Among those candidates: (James Robert Deal, John Lovick, Norm Nunnally, Dave Somers, and Robert J. Sutherland) THREE have confirmed their attendance (James Deal, John Lovick, Norm Nunnally). Their attendance to our General Meeting this Tuesday the 28th at the PUD Building on California Street in Everett at 7:00pm, will be a chance for community members, and the NAACP, to question the candidates about their commitments to Snohomish County Citizens of Color.

We invite you to also join us to be apart of this integral part of the election race.
