Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I was devastated to learn today of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  She was a leader on civil rights and women’s rights and a powerful and brilliant jurist.  She will be sorely missed.  See The New York Times story here.   And, see the statement from Executive Constantine here

Regarding the wildfire smoke, as of this afternoon the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency is expecting we will see some improvement tonight in air quality and (cross your fingers) should see a real improvement by tomorrow.  However, conditions continue to change, so I encourage you to check The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency page and Air for the latest updates.    

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.
