The November General Election resulted in several new decision makers in Seattle government, both in the Mayor’s office and with City Council. Congratulation to:
Mayor Bruce Harrell – We look forward to working with you on improving our public spaces especially playfields while taking care of the needs of those with life challenges. We heard your support for parks and recreation loud and clear during the campaign.
Councilmember Sara Nelson (District 9 – City-wide) – Welcome back to City Hall CM Nelson. FAF is a firm believer that every Seattle citizen should have equal access to decent active recreation facilities preferably near their neighborhood. You have pledged to look out for the entire city.
City Council President Debora Juarez – Thank you CM Juarez for your many years chairing the Pubic Assets and Native Communities Committee. We welcome your leadership as President of City Council.
Seattle City Council has adjusted its committees and memberships with parks and playfields now being overseen in the new Public Assets & Homelessness Committee chaired by CM Andrew Lewis (District 7). Members include: Vice Chair Teresa Mosqueda (Citywide District 8), Lisa Herbold (District 1), Tammy Morales (District 2), and Debora Juarez (District 5). FAF looks forward to hopefully meeting all of you soon to discuss active recreation’s needs throughout Seattle.
