We’re Taking Questions NOW for our Oct. 2 Town Hall Forum on Annexation
Be sure and mark your calendar for Tuesday night, Oct. 2!
That’s when The B-Town Blog, in association with sister site The White Center Blog, will be hosting a Town Hall Forum on the city of Burien’s proposed annexation of North Highline, starting at 7 p.m.
The annexation issue will appear on the Nov. 6 General Election ballot.
The Town Hall will be held in the multipurpose room of White Center Heights Elementary School, located at 10015 6th Ave SW, in White Center, just a few blocks east of McClendon Hardware.
This free forum is open to everyone. Be sure and invite family, neighbors and friends, your fiancé, your boss, your boss’s boss, pretty much everyone you know.
WE’RE TAKING YOUR QUESTIONS
Meanwhile, we are taking questions now from readers such as YOU, which we will consider asking our Pro and Con participants Oct. 2. This is especially relevant for Readers who may not be able to attend our forum, yet still have questions for either side.
So put on your Critical Thinking Cap and come up with some Edward R. Murrow-style insightful, probing inquiries and send them to:
Remember, ballots go out in just a few weeks. The people who will decide Yes or No on annexation are the voters who live in the proposed annexation area, which is essentially that chunk of land just south of the Seattle border, home to about 17,000 people.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: We’d like to clarify that neither The B-Town, nor White Center Blog, has taken, or will take, a public stand for or against the issue of annexation. However, we understand that due to the large number of anti-annexation comments on our blogs that many people assume that we’re against it. This is not true, and is merely a reflection of how our Readers feel. We vow to conduct this Forum in the same professional manner that we’ve conducted numerous Candidate Forums in the past – in a fair manner, and from a neutral viewpoint.]
