Town hall tonight at the Nordic with Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles

Tonight (Oct. 24), County Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles will host a town hall at the Nordic Museum at 7pm. The meeting will be about the 2019-2020 proposed budget.

Also at the meeting will be a panel including Dwight Dively, King County Budget Director; Mark Ellerbrook, Division Director of Housing & Community Development at DCHS; Brad Finegood, Assistant Division Director of Behavioral Health and Recovery at DCHS; and Bill Bryant, Manager of Service Development at King County Metro Transit. The panel will be on hand to answer questions and help explain the budget process and its impact on specific departments and operations that affect Ballard.

“This is a unique opportunity for my constituents to share their priorities on how the county intends to invest in our region over the next two years,” Kohl-Welles said in a statement about the town hall. “Hearing from the public helps me better do my job so I can work to secure investments important to the residents of District Four and the entire county.”

The town hall is free and open to the public.

The Ancient Mariner. You know, the one with the rhymes.

Because for 41 years they’ve done nothing in terms of championships? Would you pay your employees that much with that little benefit?

Seattle idiots care more about sports teams than keeping the city clean and safe. Despite the wealth, the priorities are pretty trashy around here. Durkan busts balls on the SPD but falls all over herself about pro sports (muh Reign! muh NHL!). Embarrassing. You’d think this town was some flyover dump in redneck country, and maybe it is, just more gay (friendly).

SJW hate sports team because it promotes toxic masculinity

No, the sports teams here have SJW cancer bad. Look at the Seahawks and all that take the knee crap

Look at these pie-eyed goobers. No wonder Seattle is a swamp of ex-librarians with hyphenated names ruining the city with their elementary school understanding of things. When they don’t have their hands in our pockets they’re figuring out more ways to cram screaming junkies into the neighborhood. These people are all LOSERS and TRASH politicians.

Love to hear your nuanced takes on what exactly the hyphenated name has to do with this.

No loyalty to husband = no loyalty to constituents and local culture

This issue is writ large in national politics.

Yes, I am in agreement with certain foreign Abrahamic religions regarding marriage roles. Why are you so intolerant, Andrew? DIVERSITY

At the Russian troll farms, they distribute lists of trigger words and phrases: Soros, hyphenated names, soy boy, Obama phone. Whatever. It doesn’t have to make any sense; a good troll has at least three of them, five is better. But there’s no limit

Yeah, keep telling yourselves we’re all Russians. No wonder you bong tokers can’t run a city.

And yet you can’t unseat a single bong toker. Sad.

Only a real LOSER would be proud of this menagerie of pink mafia mutual backscratchers who all SAID LITTLE OR NOTHING when Murray the Pedo was in office. Yeah, they can keep getting re-elected by mobilizing the public school unions, welfare grifters (muh white supremacy), illegal immigrants (yo no habla Ingles!) and the public servants (who are often all of the previous) all on the taxpayer teat. Pathetic.

Murray the pedo. And even that wasn’t enough for you to win anything. Couldn’t even get out of a primary and at least claim an also-ran trophy. Who does the party of personal responsibility blame for all these losses? Yourselves, ever?

Go vote yourself another raise and stop embarrassing yourself. Just because I think the Seattle Liberals are bar none the stupidest Democrats in existence does NOT mean I’m Republican.

That certainly goes against what you said here:

The Sockpuppet is still sad because his attempt at getting elected mayor in 2017 fell short…way short…in the primaries. Kudos to him for garnering 1.81% (3,340 votes) of the overall vote though!

Make up your mind. Is everyone you disagree with “Harley” or the Russians?

Definitely Harley. Your posts aren’t coordinated enough to be a paid Russian troll.

@Truth
Does Harley work for the Russians?
Or maybe it’s the Moon Men or Illuminati?

Dang, that Obama phone really set me off this morning! I must go forth and troll, or something.
