Q1. Why are you in Belltown?
A. I landed in Belltown 15 years ago from Alaska, expecting to only be here for one night. I'm still here. I feel accepted here. And protected.
Q2. What's your favorite thing about #Belltown?
A. This is the last bastion of independence. I know that if I fall down here, people will pick me up. And I'll pick them up when they fall. I've lived all over the world, and there's no place like this out there.
Q3. What's your message for the Mayor and Council about Belltown?
A. We live in a crazy dichotomy between the influx of money and the rest of us who are living sub rosa. We're the people doing your dishes and cooking your food and cleaning your sidewalks, but we can't afford to live here anymore. Will you come visit us in Belltown? This place gets a bad rep but it's just a rep. We'd love to meet you!
