Q1. Why are you in Belltown?
A. its home. Came here for college almost ten years ago. I tried to leave three times, and always lasted less than a year in those places. It keeps drawing me back. No matter where I go, there's nothing like this community anywhere. I'm pretty sure I've lived on every street expect Battery.. I've almost got a full bingo card!
Q2. What's your favorite thing about #Belltown?
A. it's the people. It's knowing that I can go down to Neon Boots and see Tracy. I can do a loop around 2nd Ave, and there's always something going on. The good, the bad, the ugly - we're all here for it... I wouldn't wanna put up with it anywhere else. It's just home.
Q3. What's your message for the Mayor and Council about Belltown?
A. just remember to invest in the people that keep this going. Whether that's industry people, or small businesses, or the people who live here. It'd be awesome to see programs that connect local people working in the neighborhood with programs that just make their lives more possible. It's important that people can continue to live a sustainable life, even if they're not in the top 1%.
