Open Letter To Mayor Jenny Durkan Regarding Tiny Houses At Othello Village

Now are we expected to applaud our officials for creating a village of painted sheds. There is no more land. Why did the City not purchase 23rd and Jackson and replace housing for the poorest rather to watch it sold to Vulcan?

  • Washington Middle School reviewed by a student

    I enjoy going to school because of my friends and my electives. Some teachers are not good at explaining their lessons or controlling the class. Our school is filled with inappropriate language, references and behavior. Many students feel alone, bullied and misunderstood. Our school is often not a good learning environment and it doesn't make kids feel safe or able to ask for help
