At mayor’s Town Hall: New West Seattle Helpline executive director

We’re at Hiawatha Community Center, as the seats start to fill for Mayor McGinn‘s Town Hall meeting. Among the dozens of community-group reps who are tabling tonight: The new executive director of the West Seattle Helpline, Tara Byrne. Her appointment was just announced today; she follows Anna Fern, who retired this spring. Tara’s background is in education – she’s been teaching at the UW most recently.

Organizations from all over West Seattle are here – neighborhood councils, community-project reps, and more. Come welcome Tara, and meet many other West Seattle neighbors who are working day to day to make our community a better place. The Town Hall kicks off at 6:30 with youth performances, and then Q/A with the mayor and other city reps is scheduled to start around 6:40.

    i was too busy earlier to get there and too tired to take a chance that someone is still there now…
    i hope someone went and asked the question about whether or not residency in Nickelsville qualifies for a West Seattle Address.

    What a small world! I went to junior high and high school with Tara. Congratulations to Tara on using her brains, skills, and personality to help those in need.

Sorry, comment time is over.
