Mayor McGinn meets with LGBTQ leaders

Last Saturday about forty local LGBTQ community leaders gathered at the
Miller Community Center for a roundtable meeting with Mayor Mike McGinn. The
community meeting was organized to gather a broad group of LGBTQ leaders and
foster dialogue - both between LGBTQ organizations and the City but also
among the groups and leaders themselves. Participants ranged from gay and
lesbian seniors to youth and represented several generations of activism,
history and experience. Discussion topics included building sustainable and
lasting LGBTQ organizations and community institutions, policing, safety,
and issues related to the particular challenges of gay and lesbian seniors
who may struggle to find accepting places and support as they age. Read more

Electric vehicle chargers coming to Qwest Field

If you've filled up your gas tank recently, you know that gas is expensive.
It's also tough on our environment. Last Friday marked a significant step
forward in Seattle's commitment to sustainability and our nationwide effort
to reduce dependency on foreign oil. Mayor McGinn joined Seattle City Light,
ECOtality, and Qwest Field as they celebrated the installation of Seattle's
first publicly available electric vehicle charging stations. The stations,
called Blink, were recently installed in the north lot of Qwest Field. By
the end of the year, more than 1,000 publicly available charging stations
will be installed in Washington State, many of them in Seattle.

This summer, customers will be able to use a Blink app for smartphones and
other mobile devices to find and reserve the charging stations. You can
learn more about the program here
