It was worth someone's time

Something useful came out of the Seattle Neighborhood Summit after all. Courtesy of Chris Leman of the City Neighborhood Council:
One outcome of the Oct. 28 Seattle Neighborhood Summit was a proposal for a City commission on disabilities issues. The present system is not working well, in which there is typically one disabled individual on the Human Rights Commission and one on the Pedestrian Advisory Board. The disabled community is extremely diverse, and would benefit from having the voice of a City commission. As reflected in the letters below [Chris summarizes them well, so I haven't included them], some individuals are advancing such a proposal to member of the City Council. Whatever your views, please consider writing to the Councilmembers about this issue. The issue is urgent right now because of the ongoing budget process.
