I just became a Citizen Councilor for the King County Community Forums program. I am Citizen Councilor #1699!
The program is designed as an alternative to public hearings that, frankly, don't work. I like the idea of hosting salons to incresase civic engadgement. I'll be posting to my blog here what I learn from hosting and particpating in the program.
Cheryl Honey, oringinator and Master Weaver of community weaving, informed me about the program. Thanks Cheryl!
