Tonight: California Place Park workshop; ballot-mailing deadline

CALIFORNIA PLACE PARK: While one group of neighbors has expressed intense opposition to making changes to this tiny park next to Admiral Congregational Church (map), the group exploring potential “improvements” is moving forward with design workshops, led by the landscape architect hired with a $15,000 matching-funds grant received for this process, and the first one is tonight, 7 pm, Alki Community Center, first public meeting on the proposal since this tense one last November. (Archived WSB coverage of the park proposal is here; the project organizers’ official website is here.)

checkbox.jpgELECTION DEADLINE: Today is the official Election Day for a special election in which King County voters are choosing the elections director (and several areas outside Seattle have other issues on the ballot). All ballots are mail-in; they must be postmarked by 8 pm tonight, also the deadline for getting it to the drop box at the Delridge Neighborhood Services Center if you’d rather take it there. Full details and helpful links in this previous WSB report.

    Please make sure you mail those ballots in. This is an important election even though a small one. Sheryl Huff has run the department well since it’s troubles and deserves to stay in the post.

    I miss the days when elections were free and open, and I could just walk to the corner precinct to drop off my ballot. Here is one voter who would likely have voted for Huff if only I could justify paying the 42-cent poll tax.

    Are the post offices staying open later to accommodate the postmarked before 8pm bit or is our only option between 6PM and 8PM to go to the Delridge area drop box?
    I really liked being able to cast our vote up until 8PM right across the street, didn’t even have to drive, or use a stamp.

Sorry, comment time is over.
