Tim gets Published!

Last night, I spoke at a Burien City Council meeting, and a reporter for the Burien Daily asked me to send in a “letter to the editor” saying what I just said.  So I did- here’s the link that got published this morning.
The City Council meeting was about the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) for Burien through 2018.  I was naturally interested in what people had to say, and was internally debating myself on whether to go up and speak.  When it came time for comments, an older guy came up and said that we needed MORE parking downtown- I told myself, “that’s my sign!” 🙂
So I went up and spoke up for a walkable, bikeable Burien with sidewalks and bike-lanes and a more dense urban core.   Not much of a response (although many city board members and citizens who attended the meeting were nodding as I spoke).

What does it mean to “get published” mean these days, anyways?  But Burien has a number of blogs that get quite good traffic (at least, I think so- a number of them get between 20K-75K unique visitors/month.  I don’t know how that measures up.)  Anyways, it was fun to get recognized.
