A Conversation with Councilmember Mike O’Brien
Greenwood Community Council June Meeting
7:00 PM, Tuesday June 19, 2018
Greenwood Public Library
8016 Greenwood Ave. N
Our June meeting is devoted to having a conversation with Councilmember Mike O’Brien, a meeting scheduled months ago, not due to any recent events. Mike O’Brien represents the Sixth City Council district, which generally includes the portion of Greenwood south of 85th St. We expect he’ll want to discuss current issues he’s working on and answer questions.
If he’s willing, we have a twist to throw in: We’d like to give a few people a chance to pitch a great idea, a win-win solution for Greenwood or Seattle. If you’d like to propose an idea, please send them to us by the end of the weekend. Please send us an email explaining (briefly):
- What’s your issue?
- What’s your idea?
- What’s could the City Council do about that?
- What’s the best way to contact you?
- What is your Greenwood basis? (optional)
(Employee, business owner, resident, land owner, multiple of the above, none of the above.)
We’ll be in touch. But even if you don’t submit an idea in advance, please bring your ideas and your questions on Tuesday for a productive exchange with Councilmember O’Brien.
One thought on “June Meeting: A Visit with Councilmember Mike O’Brien”
I’m actually from Ballard. However, the issues we share in common are many (transit, housing, homelessness and more).
I wanted to share something that our Ballard businesses have done that is making a difference. The Ballard Business Alliance has partnered with the City of Seattle and Evergreen Treatment Services to hire a REACH outreach worker. She has been on the job for a number of months at by all reports is making a difference in the lives of housed and unhoused members of our community.
I’d like to encourage Greenwood businesses and residents to team with the City of Seattle to do something similar.
