Youth and Family Initiative
During his inaugural address, Mayor Mike McGinn announced a Youth and Family Initiative. The co-chairs of the new initiative are former mayor Norm Rice, former deputy mayor Bob Watt and Estela Ortega, executive director at El Centro de la Raza.
McGinn also announced that there would be five meetings around Seattle to engage citizens in the process of addressing the important issues that our city’s youth and families face everyday. All the meetings are from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The dates and locations of the meetings are as follows:
February 22 – Rainier Community Center
March 1 – Northgate Elementary School
March 8 – Van Asselt Elementary School
March 15 – Denny Middle School
March 22 – Garfield Community Center
We hope that you will attend one of the engagement meetings. Please feel free to attend as many as you like. For those who cannot make it out to any of the meetings, we are working on putting together a strong web presence for the initiative so that you can share your input online. Or, send us a letter or give our office a call. We want to hear your ideas.
We look forward to working with Seattle’s citizens to improve everyday lives, conditions and opportunities for everyone. We are going to solve these issues together.
