June 11 – Who speaks for the neighborhoods?

Former Mayor Mike McGinn ponders “who speaks for Seattle’s neighborhoods” in a recent Crosscut op-ed.  This month we will hear from a panel of neighborhood activists who represent organizations that feel they speak with a “neighborhood” voice:

  • Catherine Weatbrook – Co-chair of the City Neighborhood Council and past chair of the Ballard District Council
  • Ruedi Risler – President of the University Park Community Club, a neighborhood council that does not allow renters to be members
  • Zachary Pullin – President of the Capitol Hill Community Council, a neighborhood  council that tries to engage renters in the organization
  • Deborah Jaquith – Chair of the newly formed Crown Hill Urban Village Committee for Smart Growth
