Upcoming MDC Meetings and Events
|King County Exec. Dow Constantine addresses MDC members at Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles' home, 2009.
"As a long-time member, I have always enjoyed the opportunity
afforded by the MDC to discuss the issues of the day with a group of seasoned agitators of all ages - folks who know which
side they are on and care about leaving the city and the nation better than they found them." - King County Executive Dow Constantine
The MDC regularly meets
at noon in downtown Seattle on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month - except for November and December, when we
meet just once a month - to hear from arranged speakers and discuss issues over our brown bag lunches or snacks from the nearby
delis. Guests are always welcome to join us, so feel free to bring along your lunch and a family member, friend or colleague!
Convenient and relatively
inexpensive parking can always be found in the garage at Pacific Place, two short blocks south on Sixth Avenue.
