Seattle City Council debuts Seattle for Washington webpage
Seattle - The Seattle City Council today launched a webpage dedicated to its statewide engagement effort, Seattle for Washington, aimed at strengthening relationships with key policy makers, legislators and local elected officials from throughout the state.
"It is our hope that by strengthening our relationships and connections with our counterparts in other cities and better understanding the challenges they face, we will improve our ability to work together on common issues," said Council President Sally J. Clark.
The idea of Seattle for Washington and the key principles of the program were developed in 2010 and outreach efforts have continued since then. This year the program focused on meeting with mayors, councilmembers and state representatives from cities around Seattle. During the 2013 state legislative session Councilmembers will make several trips to Olympia to collaborate with colleagues from around the state and speak with legislators.
View the complete list of representatives visited on the Seattle for Washington website.
Seattle City Council meetings are cablecast and Webcast live on Seattle Channel 21 and on the City Council's website. Copies of legislation, Council meeting calendar, and archives of news releases can be found on the City Council website. Follow the Council on Twitter and on Facebook.
