Over 30 candidates vying for political office attended the 4th annual Sea Beez Ethnic Media–Candidates Meet and Greet at the Nagomi Tea House on Aug. 15 in an effort to introduce themselves to communities of color.
Candidates made it to the International District from as far away as Fircrest to make one minute speeches and mingle. (end)
