The following is a Sponsored post from Joe Nguyen for State Senate:

Why I am Voting for Joe Nguyen
By Lois Schipper

Earlier this year, I decided to run for the State Senate because I wanted to make sure Burien and White Center have a voice in the Legislature. As we all know, Burien and White Center are all too often left out of the decision-making process. This is why it is so incredibly important that whomever we elect as out next State Senator is going to fight for our communities in the

Legislature. After getting to know both Joe and Shannon over the course of the campaign I can say without a shred of doubt that the candidate best suited to represent us in Olympia is Joe Nguyen.

Joe is the living embodiment of Burien and White Center. Joe was born in Park Lake Homes (now Seola Gardens) in White Center. He went to elementary school at Hazel Valley Elementary, middle school at Cascade, and High School at Kennedy Catholic High School. He grew up playing basketball at the Boys and Girls Club in White Center, and most of his family still live in Burien and White Center. Joe cares deeply for our community. In his own words “This community gave my family and me the opportunity to succeed, and it is my duty to give back to the community that gave me so much in our time of need.” I can’t think of a better person to represent us in Olympia.

I am also supporting Joe because as a Public Health Nurse, I have dedicated my 30-year nursing career to helping families and children live better lives. One of the issues we deal with on a regular basis is childhood obesity. Countless studies have shown us that sugary drinks are one of the leading contributors to childhood obesity, and that soda companies are intentionally advertising to children. I was disturbed to discover Shannon Braddock has accepted thousands of dollars from the soda industry and their affiliated groups. These companies and groups are directly contributing to the epidemic of childhood obesity, and I am appalled at Braddock’s decision to accept their money. In her own words, “I don’t support their initiative, but I am happy to take their money.” I understand that running a campaign is expensive, but true leadership means making hard decisions, and values should not be up for sale. If you don’t support their position, take a stand and don’t take their contributions.

This election is especially critical given the fact that this is the first time the Senate seat has been open in almost a decade, and whoever wins in November is likely to have this seat for a very long time. If you want someone who actually cares about the people of Burien and White Center, I ask you to join me in voting for Joe Nguyen by November 6th.

Due to installation work of a mini-roundabout, there will be traffic restrictions near the intersection of 8th Ave SW & SW 108th Street (map below), starting Monday, Oct. 22.

King County Roads says that construction will be completed by Friday, Nov. 16.

Work begins weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 22, and at 7 a.m. through Friday, Nov. 16 at 5 p.m.

“Expect delays.”

Project description
Design and construct a mini-roundabout at 8th Avenue SW and SW 108th Street, including a rectangular rapid flashing beacon at the west crosswalk, improvements to the sidewalks, ramps to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other safety improvements.

Why is King County doing this project?
This project will improve the safety of pedestrians and other users in the White Center community. The intersection was identified as a High Collision Location in King County’s report in 2016. The project aligns with the County Executive’s priorities of Equity and Social Justice, and Regional Mobility. The intersection is part of a designated “safe route to school” for four Highline schools, and connects to proposed project 1129600 RSD Highline School District Improvements. On-site observations by Road Services Division staff indicate that some drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians — many of which are students. In addition, pedestrian ramps on all quadrants of the intersection are not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

WHERE: SW 108th Street at 8th Avenue SW:

A Small Business Resources Open House will be held at the YWCA Greenbridge Learning Center on Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. – Noon.

This event is FREE, and everyone is welcomed.

No registration is necessary.

“Whether you’re an established business or thinking of starting one, stop by to get questions answered about loans, employee benefits, or finding a mentor to work with one-on-one.

Representatives from the government, small business lenders, community and business organizations will be here to help you meet your goals in 2019.”

WHAT: SMALL BUSINESS RESOURCES OPEN HOUSE

WHEN: Wednesday, November 7, 10 a.m. – Noon

WHERE: YWCA Greenbridge Learning Center, 9720 8th Ave SW, 98106; 206-336-7000

On Wednesday, Oct. 10, students at Beverly Park Elementary School were surprised with new laptops given out by U.S. Olympic Gold Medalists.

U.S. Olympic Gold Medalists Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson spoke at a digital literacy assembly at the school, with a goal of helping to accelerate access to technology resources for low-income students.

During the rally, 150 students were recognized as ‘digital ambassadors’ and surprised with new laptops to help expand their educational opportunities.

Cohen also announced the company is making a grant donation to the Highline Schools Foundation for district-wide technology/STEM teachers. This will help support the District’s strategic plan of ensuring every student in the class of 2026 graduates tech-savvy and tech-literate.

This was all part of the Comcast Washington Internet Essentials Campaign, which was recently expanded for low-income U.S. veterans across the state this week.

From Advertiser Re-elect Sen. Karen Keiser:

I love the job of being your state Senator in Olympia.

As Confucius observed:

Do the job you love and you will never have to work a day of your life.

What a huge gift it is to have your trust to represent you!

One of the most rewarding parts of the job is to advocate for you. When you have a problem with a state agency, whether it’s a dispute over worker’s comp. or a complaint about your local school, we can look into the problem and try and sort out a solution. If you see a person dumping waste into Puget Sound, we can contact the right people to shut it down. If you need help for an ageing parent or to find quality child care for your three-year old daughter, we can search out and refer you to licensed local resources.

Every two years, we update and distribute a community Resource Guide that lists all the public agencies in our communities that provide services to our citizens and residents. From health care to public safety, the agencies of your local and state government open their doors every day to provide help and assistance. This year’s Resource Guide will come out in November.

Too often, all we hear about are the negative stories about government. It’s a good old American habit to criticize government, but nowadays it seems there’s hardly anyone who has a good thing to say. So let me share a few stories about how we can work together to make our communities a better place for our families.

Last summer, we got a phone call reporting that someone was dumping fish waste at Redondo into Puget Sound. We reached out to the Washington Department of Ecology and the Department of Natural Resources. They investigated the complaint and found the culprit, and enforced the law. There are no more late-night pollution dumps at Redondo now.

When employers used a box on their employment applications asking everyone to check the box if they had ever been convicted or even arrested, we heard from dozens of people who were shut out of ever getting even a job interview, much less a job. We were able to pass the Fair Chance Law this year that gives every job applicant at least a first step forward in the job application process.

The #MeToo movement exposed rampant sexual harassment, and when we found out about the toxic work environment in our own Department of Fish and Wildlife, where several sex harassment cases were ignored, and one woman was even raped, we knew we had to act. This year we took action to protect employees from retribution and from “gag” orders about sexual harassment. We still have more work to do!

When the Supreme Court ruled that the state wasn’t fully funding basic education, it was a huge challenge to come up with a way to find the money without creating big new tax burdens. It took four years but we came together to find $8 billion dollars more to provide for decent teacher salaries and better schools for our kids. The Court agreed that we did our job to fully fund public education. And this year, teachers in our local school districts finally got decent raises.

Those are just some of the stories about why I love my job. Government sometimes fails to do a good job, but I hope you can understand that dedicated, hard-working state employees, teachers, police and firefighters try to make our lives safer, healthier and happier every day. And they love their jobs too.

Be sure to vote by Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018!

King County Metro, along with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), will be holding an Open house for Route 120 transit improvements and the future RapidRide H Line on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at Mount View Elementary in White Center.

The agencies are launching this second round of neighborhood conversations to help them upgrade Route 120 to become the RapidRide H Line in fall 2021.

Metro and Seattle will share updates on the project, including the future route proposal and station locations, and seek feedback on RapidRide station amenities and improvements that make it easier for people to reach transit.

The City of Seattle will also share its early design for a reimagined Delridge Way SW with bus lanes, landscaped medians, crosswalk improvements, protected bike lanes and neighborhood greenway connections, signal upgrades, paving, water and sewer pipe upgrades, spot parking and bike lane removal, and public art.

In recent months, King County Metro partnered with the City of Burien to determine routing through their community, and also finalized the preferred route, planned stop locations, and pedestrian, lighting and RapidRide station improvements.

This open house is a chance to learn about routing adjustments, the locations of consolidated and added stops, and safety and roadway improvements to be included in the project. The public also can help prioritize which RapidRide station amenities they would most like to see at each station.

MEETINGS – IN PERSON & ONLINE:

  • Wednesday, Oct. 10, at Mount View Elementary in White Center (10811 12th Ave. SW, Seattle, WA 98146) from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Note: Childcare is provided on site, and interpreter services in Spanish, Vietnamese, Khmer, Somali.
  • Online open house starts Oct. 10, to be available at Metro’s RapidRide H Line page. This website will be equipped with translations by selecting a language from a drop-down box in the top left corner.

BACKGROUND
Upgrading route 120 achieves goals of the Metro Connects long-range plan and voter-approved Levy to Move Seattle. RapidRide H Line service is scheduled to launch service in fall 2021.

Today, Metro Route 120 is tied for ninth-busiest bus route in King County and carries approximately 8,700 customers each weekday along the 13-mile corridor between Burien, White Center, Westwood Village, Delridge, and Downtown Seattle. The City of Seattle funds additional bus service on the route 120 thanks to the voter-approved Seattle Transportation Benefit District.

To upgrade the route to RapidRide levels of speed, frequency and reliability, improvements are planned along the corridor that include transit priority treatments – such as bus lanes and more green lights for buses – and RapidRide amenities including unique stations, off-board ORCA fare payment kiosks, and real-time bus arrival information signs. Metro currently operates six RapidRide lines across King County with these amenities.

This project is funded by King County Metro, the voter-approved Levy to Move Seattle and additional grant funding, which has in part been secured and is also being sought by both Seattle and King County.

SDOT and the City of Seattle play a key role in supporting this effort by funding major upgrades to Delridge Way Southwest within the city limits. SDOT is designing new bus lanes to make Metro’s RapidRide transit investment more reliable, and adding bike lanes and neighborhood greenway connections, arterial crosswalks and signals, and walkways to get people between their homes, workplaces and RapidRide.

In addition to proposing a new lane layout for public consideration, the City of Seattle’s investments plan includes basic infrastructure such as paving the northern part of the street, upgrading sections of old water and sewer pipes, and improving street lighting. The project will also invest in the Delridge neighborhood’s future and beautify the street by funding new public art and adding new landscaped median islands.

West Seattle residents and business owners will see these investments in their neighborhood thanks to Seattle voters, who partially funded this project with the nine-year Levy to Move Seattle.

A major milestone in ongoing efforts to control stormwater – one of the largest sources of pollution in Puget Sound – has been reached at a popular restaurant in White Center, where three new cisterns have been installed that will keep more than 11,000 gallons of stormwater out of the combined sewer system each year.

To celebrate this news, an Open House will be held on Thursday, Oct. 4 at Young’s Restaurant (9413 16th Ave. SW), starting at 4:30 p.m.

Here’s more from an announcement:

In this latest in a series of community projects, the RainWise Program has partnered with the iconic Young’s Restaurant in White Center to install three cisterns, each storing 530 gallons of stormwater from the restaurant’s roof.

The cisterns capture runoff from 2,838 square feet of roof area and store it for use – effectively keeping 11,145 gallons of stormwater out of the wastewater treatment system.

The local environmental nonprofit ECOSS helped Young’s owners navigate the process to access RainWise, as it has with numerous diverse businesses throughout King County.

At the Open House there will be refreshments and information on how to take advantage of RainWise rebates. The RainWise staff will share information about the program’s goals and benefits, and how to participate. Anthony (AT & P), the contractor who installed the restaurant’s cisterns, will offer insight on this installation and use of the stored water.

Anthony (AT & P) is one of ECOSS’s 16 multicultural contractors recruited through this efforts. For over a year, ECOSS’s Chinese- and Vietnamese- speaking staff assisted and supported Young’s owners and contractor through the RainWise process.

“I have neighbors and relatives who pass by and ask me, ‘What’s this?’ I tell them it’s a tank that collects rainwater that I can use to water my plants,” said Van Young, who along with his wife, Ella, owns Young’s Restaurant. “The RainWise Program helps pay for the cistern and installation – it’s a good program and it benefits our community.”

With the new cistern capacity at Young’s Restaurant, the RainWise Program now has more than 1,500 participants. By channeling stormwater runoff from over 40 acres of impervious rooftops to green infrastructure facilities such as rain gardens or cisterns, these properties are keeping over 20 million gallons of runoff annually out of the combined stormwater-sewer system, and controlling overflows in local water bodies during heavy rains.

The Youngs urge other businesses, faith-based organizations, neighbors, and community organizations in eligible basins to take advantage of this program. Property owners in the Highland Park and South Park neighborhoods and many others are eligible for RainWise rebates that can cover up to 100 percent of the cost to install a cistern or rain garden.

Besides beautifying landscapes, rain gardens help control stormwater – a significant source of pollution in local lakes, rivers and Puget Sound.

RainWise is a joint program of King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division and Seattle Public Utilities.
