November Leschi Newsletter

Submit article to Diane Snell by October 18, 2021

Send September LCC Board meeting notes to Diane S.

LCC cover will feature Emergency Program. Diane needs a paragraph from November presenters, Lawrence and Tracy, on the Emergency Preparedness Hub project

Trevor will submit November’s President’s Article while Janice is away

Holiday Leschi Newsletter

Past few newsletter editorials have been “dark.” Diane would like December’s edition to be upbeat/ positive articles. Please send suggestions to Diane S


Will ask Rachelle if she could update LCC website. Diane stated we may need to increase Rachel’s fee by $50 since website update was not part of the position responsibilities

Would like to keep Emergency Hub project as an ongoing topic.

Janet states digital newsletter is something LCC may want to consider. We would still have physical printing, but we could reduce the number of printed copies.

Trevor suggested LCC look into to get the word out about the council meetings.

Duwamish Tribe

Diane brought up possibly making donation to Real Rent Duwamish. It calls on people to pay rent to the Duwamish Tribe for their land we are on.

Trevor stated Muckleshoot, Tulalip and Puyallup tribes are opposed to the Duwamish Tribe Federal recognition. Not sure why. It would be helpful to understand the dynamics

Matthias will reach out to Duwamish Cultural Center to see if someone is available to attend LCC December meeting

Candidates Forum recap:

Over 30 attendees

Trevor shared the recording link with the campaigns:

Having chat monitored helped.

Question preparation helped—having follow up questions prepared as well as live support to craft follow ups on the fly.

Timer helped. Thank you, Gwen!

Missed recording the beginning of the meeting—To remedy in the future we should have a checklist.

Develop a communications playbook to get the word out even better. Draft copy for board members to send out. We want to share it outside Leschi.

Coordinating candidates takes a lot of effort. Recognize that this is not just sending one email— a lot of back and forth.

Janet has completed the treasurer’s transition. Trevor reminded her that the board meetings are open to all.

November Leschi Community Council General Meeting: November 3rd, 7pm
