At our July 13th Meeting we heard from Mayor Ed Murray on a variety of topics including public safety, homelessness and transporation. A number of members asked a variety of questions. The West Seattle Blog recorded all of Murray's remarks and the Q&A. You can see their report here. We also endorsed the Sound Transit 3 Levy.
The past 2 months have been an emotional rollercoaster for me and many others across the district and the country. We just finished our presidential caucus and Senator Sanders won Washington State by a large margin. As we continued our process of selecting delegates, our city council had a vote on vacating a street to facilitate building a new privately owned sports venue. While some agreed with the decision to not grant the vacation, it was very disturbing and hurtful for the female council members, who all voted against it, to receive such hateful, vitriolic, and threatening emails.
PCO Training for Primary election will be held on July 7th!
