If you live in Seattle so we are already part of the Seattle team!
I also tweeted to my 1600 followers, blogged, talked about Mike to over 80 neighbors, talked to friends at Sustainable Wallingford, Meaingful Night at the Movies, went to town halls, even rode the bus downtown to a city council announcement yesterday because of Team Mike and Government 2.0.
In addition to creating a database of people who want to “work” for the new administration it would be great if we could also build upon the amazing 2.0 style of volunteering and create a pool of people who simply want to volunteer or help out on projects.

Will these new City positions be posted to the seattle.gov website to allow current City employees to apply?

Its been a few years since Seattle demonstrated a coherent vision that included Environmental Stewardship; Human Development and Economic Development. Looking forward to see what emerges over the next few months.

This is a great beginning – a refreshing new way to approach city government. Mike is right, we do have amazing talent, resources and intellectual capital in this city. I always believe the place to start is with a Mission Statement. Who we are, what we believe, what we are passionate about, our vision for Seattle into the 22nd century. As a native Seattlelite I would say that we are passionately tolerant, deeply inquisitive, kind, comtemplative, environmentally progressive intellectuals committed to the rights of each individual to pursue happiness in their own unique way (as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others).

Thanks for hearing us & giving voice to ordinary citizen’s concerns. Please keep listening to us & don’t fall prey to the big money donors, out-of-town developers, and corporate interests that have made Seattle increasingly less livable over the last 10 years from what it has been for the previous 20. So-called growth must be ‘green’ and on a human scale

@ Sherry Reynolds and “In addition to creating a database of people who want to “work” for the new administration it would be great if we could also build upon the amazing 2.0 style of volunteering and create a pool of people who simply want to volunteer or help out on projects”: EXCELLENT IDEA!! Cf. Bellevue, which takes advantage of thousands of hours of skilled volunteer time every year to deliver municipal services. This has two key benefits: (1) it enables the City to provide a more comprehensive range of services at a lower cost to taxpayers; and (2) it fosters a strong sense of civic ownership and engagement among the volunteers, which spreads synergistically in the neighborhoods, community centers and homeowners’ associations. I think Seattle could also benefit tremendously from a wide-ranging volunteer program in multiple departments, spearheaded from and coordinated by the Mayor’s office.

I am so grateful to begin a new year with such a promising new approach to city government! So far, this looks like the vision I’ve held for Seattle ever since I arrived from the “rust belt” in 1990. Seattle is wealthy in far more ways than material. It’s about time we honor the wealth of creative ideas in our neighborhoods, community groups, NGOs, small businesses, etc. Thank you, Mike and all the team!

It is a new dawn, I believe moving the Majors office into a 2.0 style will bring new excitement and energy.
I’ve been trying to get in contact with someone about being involved in the new administration or at least starting to volunteer my time but haven’t been successful in connecting with anyone.

Hi Ms. Thomas,
I am very delighted to see the new mayor elect trying to get acquainted with the Seattleite’s immigrant and refugee populations. Often, these folks do come with enthusiastic approach to contributing toward the small business and entrepreneurship community that pose a mindset to excel. Although, on the other hand, a handful of these refugees came as less fortunate and tend to seek a socially and culturally appropriate service and support in order to integrate in the mainstream promptly. It is very true that these folks assume self-sufficiency sooner than later. Hence, creating a safety net and/or support system that address this unmet needs is extremely vital.
Our outgoing Mayor Nickels’ administration has done a marvelous job to create office within the city to address and respond the unique needs of the immigrant population. In the face of the budget adversity within the city and in our state, the need to address the real challenge of this diverse immigrant communities is still a challenge that awaits the new mayor elect.
Given the pledge and assurance made by the Mr. McGinnis, council member elects, we hope that Seattle’s forgotten immigrant and refugee communities will come into new era of intense future.

Dear Mayor McGinn;
I would love to hug a few trees for you, but I’ll probably be so stowed up from the cold with no heat or lights. Thanks Seattle City Council for approving 13,8 percent rate for Seattle City Light. Either give up eating or heat and light, we can’t have both. Thanks again Seattle City Council.
Very Truly Yours;
Terrance R Schulze
