Every two years, Councilmembers have the opportunity to decide the committees they want to chair, vice chair or be a member. Using my years of experience as an attorney working with utilities, I have elected to continue Chairing the Energy and Technology Committee. However, I have added Civil Rights (Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights) and have started a new concept for the Council to direct policy – Customer Service. Much of the work I have done in the last two years has focused on the issue: Does the City of Seattle offer outstanding customer service?
I will vice chair Seattle Public Utilities and Neighborhoods and now be in the position to significantly measure and improve “Customer Service” since I will be actively involved with the largest segment of employees charged with providing it.
I will also Chair a new committee, Law and Risk Management. I will sit on the Parks and Seattle Center Committee, and be an alternate on the Public Safety and Education Committee and Transportation Committee.
