Ballard District Council, Oct. 9: Talk with Bagshaw and Carlyle; Debate on Seattle Districts Now; Annual election of officers
The Ballard District Council meets tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 9, at the Ballard Branch Library (5614 22nd Ave NW).
It looks to be a full slate of items. Both Rep. Reuven Carlyle and Councilmember Sally Bagshaw are showing up. There will be a debate on the Seattle Districts Now campaign, which seeks to elect councilmembers by district rather than at large. And the new annual Ballard District Council officers will be elected. (It looks like the steadfast Catherine Weatbrook might be replaced by 36th District Republican Kirk Robbins, who is also a swell guy.)
The Ballard News-Tribune also has word that residents of the now-controversial Lockhaven Apartments will be making a surprise appearance to voice their discontent.
Ballard News-Tribune reporter and web editor Zachariah Bryan will also be there (the 20-something blond kid), so feel free to pester him if you like.
Here's the full agenda:
7:00 - Introductions & Short Announcements - please hold announcements to not more than one min.
