WEST SEATTLE TRANSPORTATION COALITION: 6:30 pm at Neighborhood House‘s High Point Center, tonight’s agenda includes talking about West Seattle priorities for the transportation levy – what do you think should be in the letter WSTC writes about that? – and hearing from board candidates.

‘ANGRY HOUSEWIVES’ OPENING NIGHT: 7:30 pm at ArtsWest Playhouse (WSB sponsor), it’s back, 30 years after the first production, the show that is still in the books as having “the longest sold-out run of a musical in Seattle history.”

    this is specifically an AFFORDABLE housing forum, especially for renters; please show up at the Sr Ctr and share your rent increase horror stories with CM Rasmussen
    and, there is a very important AFFORDABLE housing forum, all about renters and stopping insane rent increases, at City Hall tonight at 6pm; again, please show up at City Hall and share your rent increase horror stories with CM Licata and Sawant; the city hall event, which is in City Council chambers, will be televised; and hopefully every one of the council members will watch; and act, take bold actions to remedy our affordable housing crisis

    info about affordable housing town hall tonight at city hall:
    Rent is Out of Control!
    Affordable Housing Town Hall with Councilmembers Kshama Sawant and Nick Licata
    Thursday, April 23 6:00 pm
    City Hall Council Chamber – 600 4th Ave, Floor 2
    Sisters and Brothers,
    Please join me at this Affordable Housing Town Hall meeting. There will be time for public comment, so bring your personal stories about skyrocketing rents.
    Councilmember Licata and I will be unveiling a City Council Resolution that calls on the State Legislature to lift its undemocratic ban on rent control. We will also be discussing bold solutions to the affordable housing crisis, like a Tenants Bill of Rights and a massive public works program to build thousands of City-owned quality affordable housing units.
    Finally, we will hear from some of the applicants for the City Council position vacated by Sally Clark. The person chosen will Chair the Housing Committee and we need a fierce advocate for affordable housing and tenant right!
    Kshama Sawant

Sorry, comment time is over.
