School Board members Patu, Smith-Blum to host community meetings

Betty Patu.
Seattle School Board Member Betty Patu, who represents District VII (most of Southeast Seattle) on the Board, is hosting a community meeting this Saturday, September 24, from 10 a.m. until noon at Tully’s Coffee, 4400 Rainier Ave. S. (the corner of Rainier and Genesee, next to Walgreens). This is an informal drop-in opportunity to discuss our local schools with Patu.

The community meetings are held each month. The next two meetings are scheduled for Saturday, October 29, and Saturday, November 19, from 10 a.m. until noon at the same Tully’s.

If you are at the very northern tip of Beacon Hill, you may be in District V instead. The District V representative is Kay Smith-Blum, and she’ll be hosting a community meeting on Saturday, October 8, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Douglass-Truth Library, 2300 E. Yesler Way.
