Mayor McGinn returning to West Seattle for another Town Hall

He was here last month for a Town Hall at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (WSB coverage here), and now Mayor McGinn is returning to West Seattle for another one in two weeks, according to an e-mail announcement this afternoon. It invites anyone interested in Q/A with the mayor to come to the Senior Center of West Seattle, 5-6 pm Thursday, May 3rd.

      Just a few fond words here … if people really have something to say to the mayor, you might consider showing up. Even back when allegedly everybody was honked off about the snow response, the prior mayor came out and invited opinions of all kinds … and it was (almost) crickets. Really, you can stand at a mike, don’t even have to give your name, speak your piece, that goes a LONG way. Instead, these things often wind up being tied up by some particular interest group that IS unafraid to come out and pipe up … because nobody signs up to speak! We’ll be there. Would love to write about what YOU have to say, good/bad/otherwise – TR

    I hear your point and I agree I just think possibly we are basically saying we’ve heard and had enough of this mayor. At least for me talking to him won’t improve that. His views, strategies and approaches are what I have issue with.

    But TR– It is easier to voice your opinion here on the blog anonymously rather than go there in person and been seen.

    I would actually love to come and speak directly to our mayor. At this point he is being unfairly skewered. Sure he had his mis-steps early on and yes, we all think things could be run better. But he’s available, he’s listening and he’s doing many things right. Unfortunately, 5-6 PM on a weekday means most of us are either still at work or just getting off. Too early for me. Could someone speak up about the increasing density without the increasing transit infrastructure. Due to physical constraints, WS just can’t handle the density, what with the WS bridge being such a bottleneck, not to mention the never ending construction on the viaducts – both Alaskan Way and Spokane St. Until we solve the infrastructure we’ve got to stop with the development.

Sorry, comment time is over.
