Neighborhood advocates gather in wake of District Council dissolution by ‘a mayor who has vilified volunteers’
Thank you West Seattle blog for sharing the outcry of the 13 District Council response to the Mayor’s dissolution of the District Council.
“Let’s not throw out the whole system – let’s make it better.”
That was the theme last night for a gathering of longtime community volunteers who were, at times, furious:
“We are owed an apology. In a city known internationally for volunteerism, we have a mayor who has vilified volunteers … it’s inexcusable.”
“The news last week was a surprise.”
Here is a link to the West Seattle meeting last night and comments made by many of the District Councils.
