On Wednesday January 9th, the steering committee for the Districts Now campaign voted to unsplit Eastlake. In its original October 2012 launch announcement, Eastlake was split down its middle between the Roosevelt and Capitol Hill districts at Lynn Street. Thanks to the strong and positive campaigning of many Eastlakians, Districts Now agreed with our reasoning and shifted the boundary to unify Eastlake within the Roosevelt district.
The Districts Now campaign, the proposal for electing Seattle City Council by 7 district seats and two at-large seats, will enter the signature gathering phase in a few weeks to qualify for the November 2013 ballot.
Districts Now is on Facebook, for all who would care to “LIKE” the campaign.
