The video was produced by Seattle's TVSea and King County's CTV. Each candidate for King County Council, Seattle City Council, Seattle School Board, the Port of Seattle as well as supporters and opponents of ballot issues in those jurisdictions were given the opportunity to speak for two minutes about their campaign. The full video will be shown at various times on Seattle Cable, TV/Sea Channel 21/28, King County Cable, CTV Channel 22/55, KCTS Channel 9 and on several other city's cable access networks.
