Affordable Housing and Homelessness Platforms – District 6 Candidates

Primary elections are just a few short weeks away, do you know how the District 6 candidates feel about homelessness and affordable housing?  The Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund collected questionnaires from three District 6 candidates, Catherine Weatbrook, Mike O’Brien, and Jon Lisbin.  There is no questionnaire available from Stan Shaufler.  The questionnaires provide voters with the opportunity to better understand how the candidates would address the unmet need for affordable homes in Seattle.

NW 65th Street Clean Up — Thank You Volunteers!

THANK YOU to all the volunteers who turned out for the NW 65th Street Clean Up this morning! We collected 5 bags of trash, mostly cigarette butts, which is a HUGE improvement over last years clean up.

Thank You to Gretchen Spath, neighbor and owner of Cafe Bambino, for “fueling” our volunteers with free coffee.

Thank You to Justin Taft, owner of The Ridgeback Cafe, for allowing us to dispose of the trash in his waste bins.

Thank You to Catherine Weatbrook, Seattle City Council District 6 Candidate, for joining us today.

And finally… Thank You to Liza White, neighbor and owner of Four Legged Friends, for adopting NW 65th as part of the City of Seattle‘s Adopt-A-Street program.

We look forward to the next clean up!
