    Thanks for posting, Mondo. I’ll be interested in learning more about Catherine Weatbrook and any other candidates running against O’Brien.

    How is it, exactly, that there were no specific questions about property crime and what they intend to do about it?

    Hi – Catherine here – I plan to be at the CBRA meeting Thursday evening (advertised on the home page) and am generally out an about talking with people – happy to meet with those in District 6 who would like to get to know me, my work in the community, and why you might want to vote for me. If you have a regular group that meets and what to have me speak at that – send me an invite. info@catherine4district6.com

    Thanks for posting this. My vote will go to the candidate that best addresses my issues as it relates to bicycling. Based on this Q&A, I’m leaning towards Mike.

    I very much want the Burke Gilman trail to be finished as designed through Ballard. This has been a very long struggle. The route has been fully vetted, endless open house forums have been held, and many city governments have approved this FINAL design. Catherine is right, however, that it is ludicrous that this issue has lingered for so long, stalled by the Ballard Business Appellant NIMBYs. The city MUST find a way to resolve this issue and build the trail on the planned route. I want a council member that is committed and able to do this.

    I also very much want the conditions on the Ballard Bridge for bicycling to improve. In 2012, SDOT’s own poll showed that the citizens of Seattle thought that the Ballard Bridge was the worst place in the city to ride a bike and the crossing that the citizens of Seattle most wanted improved. Since then SDOT has not done one thing to improve the conditions on the Ballard Bridge for bicycling. I want a council member that is going to push the SDOT to make the Ballard Bridge a safe place to ride a bike. This is Ballard’s most important connection to the rest of the city, and many people will not ride their bike over it because it is so unsafe. Terry McMacken died on the Ballard Bridge while bicycling and the city still does nothing.
