Candidates talk density, housing, transit at local forum

Six of the eight Kirkland City Council candidates talked affordable housing, density, parking and transit, among other things, during a candidates forum hosted by the Kirkland Rotary and the Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce Monday night.

The forum held at the Woodmark Hotel was moderated by chamber and rotary member Patti Smith.

Council Positions 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 are up for election this year.

In Position 1, Deputy Mayor Jay Arnold is facing Martin Morgan, who were both in attendance at the forum Monday. Arnold has been on the council since 2014. Morgan, who has had a contentious relationship with the city, has run for council four times in the past starting in 2009.
