Q1. Why are you in Belltown?
A. In 1987 I could get into my apartment with a credit card. I ran a bookshop here with my friend for most of the 90s, and set up artist studios that are still here 30 years later. I'm still here too, so I guess I fell in love with the people of this place.
Q2. What's your favorite thing about #Belltown?
A. This community of humans is circle after circle of friends. You're in the center of a city, but you're living in an urban village where everyone is familiar. My friends here I could call in the middle of the night, and I know that they'll show, if I need them.
Q3. What's your message for the Mayor and Council about Belltown?
A. You can't stop change, and change is good. But legacy and history give meaning to this place, and the legacy of this place is the legacy of acceptance. Artists, thinkers.. these people are interesting! Help us keep this community alive!
