I was a bit surprised when I clicked on the "Get involved" link on the the city of seattle department of neighborhoods website and found the following.
1. Apparently the best way to start your involvement is to watch TV
2. Next read up on the Mayor's accomplishments and priorities. There is no list of failures.
3. Join a board or commission. All right - some real involvement. Unfortunately, the link is broken.
And so is our city government.
