West Seattle Monday: Citywide leaders here; plus, a benefit

Before the news of the day sweeps too much further along, one last reminder about 4 one-time-only events tonight, from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

TRANSPORTATION FUTURE: Certainly a lot of concern about Seattle’s transportation “present” – so if you have something to say, join in a workshop about its future, 5:30-7:30 pm tonight, Southwest Library (35th/Henderson). City Council Transportation Committee chair Councilmember Tom Rasmussen will be there too. Here’s our previously published preview.

PUBLIC-SAFETY BUDGET: Long before the big clamorous budget hearings, councilmembers are trying a new format to find out citizens’ priorities and concerns. Here’s one: A community conversation about the city’s Public Safety budget with Public Safety Committee chair Tim Burgess among those on hand, Delridge Community Center gym (4501 Delridge Way SW), 6-8 pm.

SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT IN WEST SEATTLE: West Seattleites with an interest in Seattle Public Schools issues are invited to a public forum at High Point Neighborhood Center (6400 Sylvan Way) tonight with interim Superintendent Dr. Susan Enfield and other district officials, 6:30 pm.

BENEFIT:Not in West Seattle, but it’s on behalf of a West Seattleite: A benefit for Nicole Pieratt, who’s battling breast cancer, is tonight at Fred Wildlife Refuge (128 Belmont Ave E) on Capitol Hill, 6 – 11 pm. More details here.

    the Transportation meeting is at the SW Library, not the community center; here is email I received today from Great City:
    Dear Great City Friends,

    This week, the Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee III (CTAC III) is holding three public workshops to hear from Seattle residents about how we should prioritize our transportation needs and evaluate funding options, including a potential ballot measure. Your attendance at one of these three meetings will go a long way towards making walking, biking, and transit the easiest ways to get around Seattle:

    West Seattle: Monday, May 23, 5:30 – 7:30pm
    Southwest Library, Meeting Room, 9010 35th Ave SW
    Councilmember Tom Rasmussen in attendance

      OK! May have gotten lost in our translation, will check the original note, but will amend to your change in the meantime – TR
