Dear Neighbor, 

In this newsletter we share updates about the Golden Gardens Keep It Moving Street and the South Parking Lot opening, changes this weekend to the Route 44 bus, updates from City Hall, and our upcoming Town Hall. Our Town Hall is happening next Tuesday, July 21 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm - and the RSVP link is below!

To make my work at City Council more accessible, I have begun sharing videos of my work at council on social media. I continue to meet with D6 residents each week, and if you would like to meet with me I would love to speak with you. You shouldn't have to go out of your way to have your voice heard by City Hall - and many of my initial outreach plans have been shuttled due to COVID. If you have ways you would like to me engage and increase my accessibility, please let me know.
We are in a historic moment in our nation's history. These moments are never easy and absolutely necessary in order to form a more perfect union. I look forward to working with you as we create a better city and nation. 


In District 6

Town Hall  

I am excited to invite you to our District 6 Town Hall! I will report on my work, answer your questions, hear reports from our district councils representing Green Lake, Fremont, Phinney, Wallingford and Ballard, convene a community conversation on race in District 6, and answer questions.

When:  Tuesday, July 21, from 5:00-6:30 pm.
Please RSVP here. Before the event you'll be emailed participation instructions as well as a link to a submit your questions.

Hope to see you there!

Meeting with You!

I continue to hold district office hours every week over the phone. When I came into office I began by opening a district office, meeting with neighborhood groups, attending meetings, meeting residents at their homes, and hosting office hours after 5:00 pm and on the weekends. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how I am able to meet with you - I truly miss seeing you in person. 

It is important to me to ensure you don't need to go out of your way to have your voice heard at City Hall. And I would love to speak with you. Please use this form to schedule a time to meet. Note: In order to respect constituents' time, everyone requesting a meeting during office hours will be scheduled ahead of time.

I look forward to talking with you!

Metro 44 Temporarily Re-Routed

From Saturday, July 18 through Sunday, July 19, at all times, Metro Route 44 will be re-routed off portions of N 46th Street and N 45th Street between East Green Lake Way N and Stone Way N. The change is due to construction.

During this time, Route 44 will travel via alternate nearby streets depending on the destination and direction of travel.

  • Heading toward the University of Washington Link Station, Route 44 is re-routed, but will serve all its regularly-posted stops.
  • Heading toward Ballard, Route 44 will not serve the westbound stop on NE 45th Street, just west of Stone Way N.  Riders may board or exit at the temporary stop on NE 45th Street just east of Stone Way N.
Transit re-route start and end times may be subject to change.Visit Metro's Service Advisories page for more information about bus service changes, routing, and stops for planned construction or events.
Golden Gardens Drive Designated a
"Keep Moving Street"
SDOT has designated Golden Gardens Drive NW as a "Keep Moving Street" where residents can walk, roll, and bike to the beach from Sunset Hill. In the first days of this street closure there were some aspects not working well. My office was quick to coordinate with SDOT and Parks to ensure the "Local Access Only" signs were visible to trucks pulling boat trailers and that unimproved sidewalks were not used for parking.
The boat launch does remain open, and ADA spaces will also be added to the top of the closed street at NW 85th Street and 32nd Ave NW.

Any feedback on this closure can be sent to: Please let SDOT know if people keep moving, share the road well, and whether you'd like to see the closure extended throughout the summer.
Golden Gardens South Parking Lot Re-Opened
My office has been advocating for the the south parking lot to re-open for months now. I am excited to share the news you may already know: the south parking lot at Golden Gardens re-opened as of July 10 and can be utilized 6:30 am - 9:30 pm. New ADA spaces will be added (temporary ADA parking spaces in the area will remain) and the loading zone will be moved into the lot.  

At City Council

The Council continues the process of considering a revised 2020 City Budget based upon anticipated revenue shortfalls resulting from the COVID-19 economic downturn.

We have also been convening special meetings of the Public Safety and Human Services Committee to address emergent issues around the Seattle Police Department budget and police accountability.
Now more than ever, I encourage you to stay engaged.

Here's how:
  • You can find all council and committee meetings and briefings on the council calendar
  • Council meets twice every Monday; we hold briefings at 9:30 am when we have presentations and discuss upcoming legislation and again at 2:00 pm when we have public comment and vote on legislation
  • You can watch all of our council meetings live here or you can listen to council meetings live through our listen line, by dialing (206) 684-8566
  • To provide public comment, sign up on this page. Registration opens two hours before a meeting begins. For example, the sign up form opens at noon for the 2pm City Council meeting on Mondays. Or you can write to us at
  • You can view a visual summary of the Council's summer budget season, illustrating when voting vs discussions are happening on the main issues we're working on.
Want to see past work from the council? Previous Council meetings and briefs can be watched here. Also, the City Clerk keeps a history of briefing agendas so that the public can remain informed about Council actions.
