Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope you and your loved ones were able to take some time off and relax over the New Year’s holiday weekend.  The Council will hold its first meeting of 2021 tomorrow (see below for information) and my colleagues and I are ready for another challenging year addressing the essential needs and safety of our residents and communities and our economic recovery.

Thankfully we know that safe and effective vaccines are being deployed and the pandemic will eventually come to an end.  However, I think it’s fair to say that we have a few rough months ahead of us and we may all be wearing masks for a while.

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.
