Beacon Lights on the Rep. Tomiko Santos Kerfuffle

Two weeks ago, State Representative Sharon Tomiko Santos arrived (late) to speak to the Beacon Alliance of Neighbors. Her visit, or rather her apparent lack of awareness expressed through her words, left a bit of a bitter taste in many neighbors’ mouths.

Craig Thompson’s latest Beacon Lights article at the P-I website has a full rundown of the representative’s numerous misses with the community, touching on her disconnects with Beacon Hill neighborhood organizations, race and reaching out, El Centro‘s community involvement, public safety, and parks and trails.

The Rainier Valley Post covered Tomiko Santos’s awkward visit earlier.
