Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Summer is coming to a close – and it certainly has been unlike any other summer in my memory.  And we’re entering a fall season that may feel even more unreal.  Fall, to me, has always meant to some extent schools in session, football, homecoming, tailgating parties.  I expect to see far less of all those things this year, so it will feel strange indeed.

The school year begins this Friday for the majority of students in the Seattle Public School district.  I’ll include some school resources in Friday’s newsletter.

The rest of this e-newsletter includes updates on the COVID-19 crisis and other issues. 

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
