As we were filling out our ballots for the primary election, we found it nearly impossible to locate unbiased, current information about our candidates for City Council. Just a few of the candidates have websites. Many have facebook pages, but the information on those pages in unclear or hard to find. This lack of credible, solid data about the people we elect to make important decisions that shape Burien led us to create BurienCity, a non-partisan resource for a more informed electorate.
We will interview candidates to find out the facts about their accomplishments, their intentions, and the steps they will take to improve our city. In addition, we will cover City Council meetings, and let you know what current Council members are working on. We will work to support locally owned businesses and organizations. Regardless of party politics, we all want to see Burien thrive as a safe, healthy, and enjoyable place to live and work.
