A Dialogue with Councilmember Kshama Sawant and
 A Call for Neighborhoods to Unite

Meet Seattle’s newest Councilmember—Councilmember Kshama Sawant.  Councilmember Sawant chairs the Council’s Energy Committee, is vice chair of the Seattle Public Utilities Committee, a member of the Housing Affordability, Human Services and Economic Resiliency Committee and alternate on the Parks, Seattle Center, Libraries and Gender Pay Equity Committee.  Learn about her priorities and participate in this important dialogue.

Also, representatives of an ad hoc citywide group of community activists will be on hand to ask for advice and support from the Federation and its member organizations for tough growth controls and developer impact fees and to join at a large planned press event the week prior to the Mayor's planned neighborhood summit.  The goal is to create a unified, simple position across neighborhoods we can all unify around, present it at a press conference and then carry the message to the Mayor's April neighborhood summit.  John Fox (SDC), Carl Winter and/or Patrick Tomkins and/or Jaisri Lingappa from Reasonable Density, and/or Toby Thaler will be on hand to present their proposal.

The February meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues in your neighborhood.  If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at
