Seattle's unique neighborhoods are what make our city great and, together, we can make it even better. I made a pledge that, if elected as Mayor of Seattle, I would hold a Neighborhood Summit within my first 100 days in office and the work has already started.
I believe there is a need for greater transparency and consistency in providing information and soliciting input from community leaders. I see an opportunity to improve how the city works with neighborhood and community leaders on issues from planning to the prioritization of city investments. This is why I am holding a summit, so we can talk -- honestly and openly.
My hope is that, together, we can implement positive changes in the city's relationship to neighborhoods to restore confidence, improve effectiveness, and strengthen purpose.
The Seattle Neighborhood Summit is the first step in an ongoing conversation. So I ask you to join us, and take a seat at the table.
Save the Date: Saturday, April 5th - 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. - Seattle Center, Exhibition Hall
