  1. I noticed that the Burien Fire Department, the City of Burien, and the Burien Ciy Police were invited to this meeting, but not the Seattle Fire Department, the City of Seattle or the Seattle Police Department.

    It seems clear that the NHUAC doesn’t want the community to engage with anyone from Seattle.

  2. NHUAC members can address Valkyrie’s comment on their own. I would note, though, that these are unpaid volunteer positions that often go begging.

    In fact, one is open now. At the bottom of the UAC home page, at , there is notice of a vacancy for an at-large position on the Council.

    If there is such a groundswell for annexation to Seattle, it would seem that there would be no shortage of applicants for the Council who would turn that body more toward their position.

    In fact, quite a few pro-Seattle-annexation people have served on the Council in the past. Could it be that they found that support for their position was not as widespread as they had hoped it might be?

    Maybe some of them can answer. I just pose the questions. I do not claim to have the answers.

  3. Heidi Johnson Says:

    In past NHUAC meetings, the City of Seattle has attended and presented materials and lectures to people that have attended the NHUAC meetings. Presentations included information from Dept. of Neighborhoods, Dept. Of Human Services, SPD, SFD, and Kenny Pitman, Seattle’s Senior Policy Analysis Personnel from the Mayor’s Office.
    The unbiased approach of providing information to the public from both entities of Seattle and Burien are all verifiable through NHUAC’s recorded meeting minutes kept on file that are open to the public to view.
    Further more the notice in question states that NHUAC will discuss their recommendation on Annexation, their minutes show that they recommended a Burien Annexation by a majority vote.
    It is very clear that this is an NHUAC meeting in regards to their recommendation.
