Are you interested in having a voice in our community? The Queen Anne Community Council is holding annual elections and they’re open to “citizens for Queen Anne, including: renters, retirees, students, homeowners, and condo owners.”
As you may know from our monthly posts, the QACC meets the first Wednesday of every month for approximately two hours. The QACC board represents Queen Anne in meetings with the city, county, Port Commission, and other political groups. Sub-committees make up the QACC; they focus on parks, transportation, neighborhood land use, public safety, planning, and social needs.
At its core, the QACC is “a sounding board for community concerns and priorities” – they’re looking out for the neighborhood, and you can have a voice in their efforts, either by attending the monthly meetings or submitting your candidacy in the annual elections.
What is the QACC looking for? “Friendly, motivated candidates interested in the betterment of Queen Anne.” Pretty straightforward requirements and all you need to do to throw your hat in the ring is submit a 50-word statement/essay on why you’d like to run for a QACC spot.
Submit your 50-word essay to Gavin Smith via email by this Wednesday, September 11th.
The annual executive board election will be held at 7:30pm Wednesday, September 18th at Queen Anne Manor. All Queen Anne residents and business owners are encouraged to run for the board, come to the meeting, and vote for the new QACC board members – it could be you!
