  1. I really hope this new council Will listen to the constituents who voted for you and award the $200,000 to Mary’s Place and Transform Burien. They are established charities and won’t disrupt neighborhoods, unlike the Methodist church that is helping to make people prisoners in their own homes. They have shown they don’t have the experience or knowledge to run a day center.
