[Quick 9.8.0] Is It Possible to Prepend Raw SQL Before SELECT Statement?

I asked this in Slack, but realized that it would probably be better here for others who have a similar question.

Is there a way within QB to prepend additional raw SQL before the SELECT statement? For example, I’m doing some geography calculations that need to be set before my main query:

DECLARE @a geography; 
SET @a = geography::STGeomFromText('POINT(#zip.longitude# #zip.latitude#)', 4326); 

It looks like the raw() method needs to be called inside of select, from, join, etc…

If this capability doesn’t exist, maybe a prependRaw() method would be a valuable feature addition to QB.
