Re:  LCC Endorsement of Proposed Charter Amendment No. 5


Dear Jay,


Thank you very much for your informative presentation at tonight’s Laurelhurst Community Club Board of Trustees meeting.  The Board voted to endorse Seattle Proposed Charter Amendment No. 5.


We appreciated your presentation and your response to our questions at our meeting.  In reaching our position on the measure, the Board also considered objective, nonpartisan materials prepared by the League of Women Voters and an editorial opposing the measure from the Seattle Weekly—materials included in the agenda packets distributed prior to the meeting.  At the meeting, Trustees also discussed an article that appeared in today’s Seattle Times about the proposed charter amendment. 


The Board was convinced that district election of councilmembers would promote accountability and greater responsiveness of councilmembers.  We also voted to contribute $50 to your campaign.


Thank you again for your presentation and we wish you good luck on the campaign trail.
