City Council candidate Pat Murakami will be at Acadia in Wallingford this Friday, June 16th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Murakami says she wants to be a strong voice for the neighborhoods in City Hall and make developers pay impact fees that could go towards schools, transportation, parks and fire/safety. For more information on this candidate for City Council, please visit her website at http://www.votepatmurakami.org/.
Murakami is running for City Council position 9, an “at large” (citywide) seat. Position 9 is currently occupied by Councilmember Lorena Gonzalez who is running for reelection (in case HALA and development are issues important to you, incumbent Lorena Gonzalez usually votes with land use chair Rob Johnson on this type of legislation).
Murakami is participating in the new Democracy Voucher program. Every registered voter in Seattle was sent in the mail four vouchers valued at $25 each. These vouchers can be given to candidates for at large City Council and City Attorney races. In order for City Council candidates to qualify to receive the voucher money, they must collect 400 signatures plus a minimum campaign contribution of $10. If you would like to support Murakami’s campaign, she will be accepting vouchers as well as signatures with the minimum $10 contribution on Friday. If you have lost your vouchers, you can request replacements by emailing [email protected].
The Meet and Greet will be at Acadia, a wonderful new cafe located in the same building that houses Tableau, at 1651 N 34th Street just south of the Transfer Station. Acadia is in the lower floor of the building. They offer local wines, craft beers, coffee, smoothies, and “fresh, wholesome Southern-inspired fare.”
Come meet City Council candidate Pat Murakami this Friday and let her know what issues are important to you!
