Former KIRO TV anchor and Republican candidate for King County Executive, Susan Hutchison, did not participate in this morning's candidate forum. The forum was sponsored by the Alki Foundation, the political arm of the Seattle chamber of commerce.
I called both the Alki Foundation and Hutchison's office to find out why.
Hutchison did not call me back.
Apparently, she didn't call the Alki Foundation either. According to chamber of commerce lobbyist George Allen, Hutchison's campaign manager sent an email saying they were aware of the event, but weren't interested.
