Looking for a Few Good Political Leaders and Judges?
So is the Municipal League.
For 93 years, the Municipal League of King County’s candidate evaluation process has helped inform voters. The Municipal League is looking for volunteers to evaluate political candidates for a variety of public offices. Volunteers will be asked to research work histories and references of candidates; interview candidates; and recommend candidate ratings. The final result is a Voter’s Guide designed to provide useful, nonpartisan information prior to the Aug. 21 primary.
Candidates are rated on four criteria: involvement, character, effectiveness and knowledge. The league does not use partisan criteria and does not endorse candidates. Volunteers are asked to evaluate candidates only to determine their fitness for office. This year, candidates throughout King County will be evaluated in races for the state legislature and judicial offices.
The league needs volunteers with diverse backgrounds and views, who will be able to leave their political leanings at the door. Knowledge of or interest in local politics is a plus but prior experience is not necessary.
