We want to extend our thanks to Seattle Police Chief, Kathleen O’Toole; as well as to
SW Precinct Commander Captain, rather: newly appointed Assistant Chief, Steve Wilske; and everyone else who helped made last night’s “Continue the Conversation” meeting an engaging, interesting and informative dialog.
This is what we had envisioned for the first Community Conversation — which was unfortunately cut short — an opportunity to pose questions and discuss issues with our Police Chief that are top-of-mind in our local community.
A sincere thanks to all of you who brought your questions and concerns, and perhaps even banished fears of microphones and public speaking, last night!
As well, kudos to Pete Spalding (SW Precinct Advisory Council) for moderating and co-sponsoring this event with us, and a huge thanks to the West Seattle Senior Center for providing the venue!
Here’s the related media coverage:
- West Seattle Blog (coverage and video of entire meeting)
- West Seattle Herald (coverage of meeting)
- King5 TV (primarily focused on Chief Wilske’s promotion)
Again, many thanks to all of you for being and staying involved!
Updated, 3/14/15: Adding a few photos that Holly McNeill from the West Seattle Senior Center sent us (thanks, Holly!); these were taken just prior to the start of the meeting.
