COUNCILMEMBER BRUCE HARRELL ANNOUNCES DATE FOR RECONFIRMATION VOTE FOR CITY LIGHT SUPERINTENDENT
Recommendations to be Heard at June 18 Meeting

SEATTLE, June 11 2008 —On Wednesday, June 18, 2008, Councilmember Bruce Harrell, Chair of the Energy and Technology Committee will disclose his recommendation of whether or not to reconfirm Seattle City Light Superintendent Jorge Carrasco. The meeting begins at 2:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall. There will be a public comment session at the beginning of the meeting and the public is welcome to attend.

Councilmember Harrell began the reconfirmation process in the middle of February and has been very thorough in gathering information and establishing a process by which key department heads should be measured. There have been several “information gathering sessions” with City Light employees and ratepayers, as well as a May 13, 2008, public comment session in Council Chambers. He established a voluntary team of facilitators to assist in the process, oversaw City Light employee polling, and kept a log of all feedback, whether positive or negative. His work also included a review of Council recommendations to City Light within the last four years. All of the interaction with employees and ratepayers has played an important role in the development of Councilmember Harrell’s recommendation, which will be disclosed at the June 18th meeting.

After the recommendation passes out of the Energy and Technology Committee, it will go before the Full Council for a vote on Monday, June 23, 2008.
