More details to come with the formal announcement; the time is expected to be 6-8 pm.

  1. I wonder if he is going to ride his bike to it?
    Or maybe have a city car drive him with in two blocks THEN ride his bike the rest of the way. Just like the way he gets to work.

  2. LOL!! That’s exactly what I was gonna say. I bet the big agenda will be the viaduct and screw job we’ll get no matter which proposal will be built.

  3. Yeah, McGinn has ONLY cut down on the mayor’s use of City Vehicles by 88% since taking over from Nickels. I mean really, he should have been able to cut that down by 90% at least…

  4. PLEASE attend, and make it known that we aren’t pleased with his attempts to cut West Seattle off from the rest of the city.
    .
    A big part of his cutting down on vehicle use might well be that he doesn’t travel as much (which is a bad thing – the Mayor should be visible). It’s one thing to claim something like an 88% cut in use, but let’s see why.

  5. Michael – I completely agree that people should show up to this town hall (and other events in West Seattle and the City in general) and express their concerns.

    .
    I can definite respect the mayor for “walking (and biking) the talk,” since so many elected officials/leaders simply do not. They expect others to make the “sacrifices” they won’t make themselves. McGinn certainly seems to be as or even more visible than Nickels was in the communities from what I’ve seen, bike or no.
    .
    Many of the decisions we make now will be affecting what our communities look like for decades to come. Both inter and Intra-neighborhood mobility are huge issues (and I’m not just talking to/from downtown), as is how our communities and neighborhoods grow. So again, definitely get out and make your feeling known and help make the changes you want to see actually happen.

  6. i’d like to ask him if he’s ever told martin selig to go… fly a kite. selig is the wealthy downtown land owner who thinks he can dictate public policy. he’s a huge part of political gridlock.
