Kick-Off of signature gathering for two Seattle City Charter Amendments

(I do not necessarily endorse these: Andrew) 

Please join us Wednesday, May 6th at 5:30pm at Kawabe Memorial House, 221 18th Avenue South (just north of Jackson Street, near Washington Middle School) for the Kick-Off of signature gathering for two Seattle City Charter Amendments:

             Seattle Districts Now – modifies City Council from 9 at-large positions to 5 district positions and 4 at-large positions.  The vast majority of large cities have an organizational structure of either all district council positions or a hybrid combination of district and at-large positions.  This amendment is intended to provide Seattle voters will better direct representation.

            Equal Chance for Voters – allows voter sponsored Charter Amendments to go before the voters in every election year.  Currently we are only allowed to present amendments in elections held in odd years.  Let’s empower Seattle voters!

For further information, to download petition copies, or to make a donation go to:

         NOTE:  This website will have complete amendment information, voter registration links, etc. by Friday morning, May 10th (it is still under development).

 You may also pick up petiitions in the mailbox at 2817 S McLellan Street.

If you are unable to attend but wish to volunteer or need further information, please contact Pat Murakami at:  206.774.9146  or
