Seattle Council Visit to Tacoma, Oct. 2012
Left to right: Seattle Councilmember Bagshaw, Tacoma Deputy Mayor Lonergan, Tacoma Mayor Strickland, Seattle Council President Clark, and Tacoma Councilmember Victoria Woodards.
In 2010 the City Council launched a project to change the relationship between Seattle and the rest of the State: "Seattle for Washington." This program helps us strengthen relationships with key policy makers and better understand issues important to communities around the state. By building relationships and opening dialogue, we hope to reduce conflict and create opportunities for positive and constructive working relationships.

The idea of Seattle for Washington and the key principles of the program were developed in 2010 and outreach efforts have continually increased since then. This year the program focused on meeting with Councilmember from cities around Seattle and members of the Seattle delegation of legislators. In 2013 Councilmembers will make several trips to Olympia to speak with legislators during session and will travel throughout the state once the legislative session is over.
