“I was honored to accept the invitation to speak at the annual in-person meeting of the Fremont Neighborhood Council (FNC) on April 24, 2023.  While most of FNC’s participants reside or work west of my Council District 4, FNC’s geographic boundaries stretch east to include “East Fremont,” which is part of District 4.

“Topics the FNC wanted me to discuss included the State’s expansive new land use policies, making sure developers build more low-income housing, protecting Seattle’s trees, preventing crime, and reducing homelessness.

“FNC is one of the dozens of community councils across Seattle. To find the community council closest to you and to get involved, CLICK HERE.’

All current FNC councilmembers were re-elected for another year at this meeting, and new member Timothy Kitchen was elected to join the board. See the current board list here
