Letter to the Editor: Be creative to keep students in the loop about civic activities

Saturday, December 29, 2018

To the Editor:

In CaraLee Cook's letter regarding students engaging with City Council members, her first sentence mentions the small stipend they receive. I thought Council members were elected to represent their constituents to help make the city of Shoreline a better and more livable place, not for what they get paid.

Students are in school all day, some have part-time jobs after school, and there is homework. In order to "get the word out" about what the Shoreline City Council is up to, is it possible that information could be sent to the two high schools to be published in the school paper? Be creative and think about a way to keep the students (and others) informed as to Neighborhood Association, meetings, etc.

Ed. note - we actually have four high schools in Shoreline. Besides the two public high schools (Shorewood and Shorecrest) there are two private schools (Seattle Christian and King's).
