ALL ABOUT HALA: The Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda is one of the biggest topics in the city right now and will be for a long time. What’s it really about, and what do you need to know?

    Will you be covering the HALA meeting? Video?

      Currently planning on video. But you have heard my line before – no substitute for being there if you at all can! – TR

      Hard to read on a phone

        Hi, JH. What phone/OS? The mobile version, which most phones should default to, is the same simple type we had previously – and there should be a mobile/desktop toggle at the bottom of the screen. If not, please let us know. We’ll see your comment here or you can e-mail editor@westseattleblog.com – thank you – Tracy

    Absolutely right, Tracy. I went to the meeting and asked a question. Much better to be there. 

    • WSB January 20, 2016 (10:27 pm)

      Glad you could do that. Patrick rolled video and we’ll have that up … but even with much higher-quality video than we can provide, I tend to find it’s just not the same.

Sorry, comment time is over.
