In my last 3 years working on the Eastside, I've gained a deep appreciation for how the community on this side of the lake has contributed to the greater Seattle area's ascendancy as an important global marketplace. And, more importantly, I can see how it continues to lead the way. For our communities to be regional leaders, we in the Northwest need to be informed of and engaged in Eastside issues.
This is where you come in. Crosscut’s aim is to expand its editorial coverage to the Eastside, but they need your membership support to do it.
There are a number of factors that helped instill the independent spirit and can-do attitude that made the Eastside what it is today. These are also the factors that keep us ahead of the pack. We celebrate excellence and appreciate the link between quality of life and economic vitality. This continues to guide our civic endeavors; from ensuring world-class health care and educational opportunity to providing access to the arts and other forms of entertainment.
Join me as I salute Crosscut for recognizing the importance of the Eastside by reporting and offering commentary on Eastside issues that affect the region as a whole. For, as the Eastside grows, so will the region.
