Allan Ekberg will need some time to get up to speed. Having had considerable experience with Tukwila government, this should go pretty smoothly.
We urge you to vote YES three times for Tukwila schools on the Feb. 9 ballot. There is a School Programs and Operations Levy, a bond and a Technology Levy.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Two members of the Foster High School faculty have written this Open Letter to Students, in solidarity with other Foster teachers, expressing their support for ALL students who attend Foster.
First things first, we need more space at all of our schools. As you can see, and your students have certainly told us, the buildings are full, and we expect between 18 and 44 percent more students in the coming decade! The bond, therefore, funds construction to provide additional classroom space for grade spans.
Yes, there’s an abundance for this superintendent to be grateful for on Thanksgiving! Please treasure your time with your loved ones because that’s what counts the most.
A professionally run campaign is aware of how we think, how we react and what encourages or discourages us to vote. The campaigns are run accordingly.
In talking with them and watching them at City Council meetings and candidate forums, I don't sense any hidden agendas or underlying political (yes, I know the council is nonpartisan) philosophies that run counter to what's good for the city.
The Tukwila Reporter offered Allan Ekberg a chance to write, in his own words, why Tukwila voters should elect him mayor.
The Tukwila Reporter offered De'Sean Quinn a chance to write, in his own words, why Tukwila voters should elect him mayor.
And now the tough part. We have done our homework. How do we decide? That, friends, is up to each of us. However, let’s not succumb to the worst reason ever to vote for someone: Because they asked us first, and they are nice people.
So here’s what I want to say to each and every student and teacher: YOU ARE NOT A NUMBER. You can never be reduced to a number, and what makes you exceptional outshines any ill-conceived federal law. More than that— never start to let a label like “failing” define what you are capable of achieving. You are limitless.
Tukwila's should vote yes resoundingly in the Nov. 3 general election on a measure to change the pool district’s governance to a independently elected Board of Commissioners. At the same time, they’ll be voting on the first five members of the new governing board.
The Tukwila Reporter offered Katherine Kruller the chance to speak directly with voters about why she's the better candidate for Tukwila City Council Position 6 and about her vision for the city.
The Tukwila Reporter offered Charles Richard Tyson the chance to speak directly with voters about why he's the better candidate for Tukwila City Council Position 6 and about his vision for the city.
The last couple of years has revealed the manner in which some police departments have treated black individuals in stressful confrontational encounters.
I think this year’s mayoral election is particularly important. Mayor Jim Haggerton, along with his administrative staff AND the City Council, have laid the groundwork for a next-generation Tukwila. Haggerton is leaving the city in pretty good shape.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. It’s likely that you have heard of the national emphasis on STEM education, but in Tukwila we are pioneering the movement to include the “A”— art is a fundamental way of viewing and expressing oneself in the world.
What I like about Fort Dent and Starfire is that the largest soccer complex in the Northwest is the result of creative thinking by the City of Tukwila and the founders of Starfire.
The future of Tukwila is looking good. Have you noticed that the Museum of Flight is building a new aviation pavilion on their west campus? More aviation enthusiasts will be visiting our community.
