For our February 10 meeting (which will be broadcast on the BDC YouTube channel), we are pleased to welcome legislators from three levels of local government:
- Washington State Senator Reuven Carlyle
- King County Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles
- Seattle City Councilmember Andrew Lewis
We’ll hear a brief general update from Senator Carlyle re: state legislative activity and then a key focus of the meeting will be a panel discussion of how State, County and City government are working together on issues of homelessness, drug addiction and untreated mental illness — these intertwined crises are the most common issues Ballardites ask us about. We hope this will be a valuable continuation of information and discussions from our December meeting (re: supportive housing/shelter and homelessness services in Ballard).
Help share this with other community members and please send us your questions/comments for consideration in the panel discussion.
