Want to run for neighborhood council? Now is your chance

Who would want to run for neighborhood council? The positions are unpaid and council members have to sit through long and sometimes unruly meetings. The  resolutions they pass and the positions they adopt are often ignored and frequently met with criticism and ridicule. However, the city’s network of neighborhood councils continue to attract veteran activists and newcomers.  For those who might be interested in serving,  neighborhood councils representing much of the Eastside will be holding elections on two separate days in April but candidates need to file several weeks before. In fact, the filing deadline for one group of councils is this Thursday, Feb. 26.   The deadline for the second group is  March 12.

Here are the filing deadlines and elections days broken down by council:
