Council Member's Message



There are three upcoming events to bring to your attention as the summer winds down and we approach fall. First of all, the Eastside Community and School Barbeque will be held on Thursday, August 25. This annual event is an outstanding celebration of our schools, our students and our Eastside community as residents, businesses and local organizations all come together for food and festivity. It’s scheduled to coincide with the Eastside Schools open houses and offers us all an opportunity to support the youth of our community (see story below for more details).


Next up, I will be hosting a community forum on Tuesday, September 13 at 6:30 p.m. at the Firefighters Hall & Museum (664 – 22nd Avenue NE) to introduce Inspector Todd Loining. Police Chief Harteau recently announced some changes in the leadership of our City’s precincts, including moving Insp. Loining to the Second Precinct, while Insp. Waite has taken over the Fifth Precinct. I have every confidence that Inspector Loining will continue the strong Second Precinct tradition of community partnerships that has been the foundation of public safety in the First Ward.


Also on Tuesday, September 13, the Ward One Office is partnering with East Side Neighborhood Services on their 39th annual health and wellness event, Your Community for a Lifetime: A Health & Wellness Expo. This event, which takes place 10 a.m. to noon at 1700 2nd Street NE, connects community members with important resources and services to enhance their health and well-being.

I hope you'll  be able to join me for one or more of these events in September!
