“Juvenile Crime and Justice in King County”

Introduced by: Bob Holert

Councilmember Balducci’s presentation will focus on juvenile crime and justice in King County. It’s been in the news a lot lately – ongoing levels of youth gun violence, the controversy around the new juvenile detention facility, some of the programs to try to divert youth out of the justice system, racial disproportionality, what we mean when we say our policy is “zero detention”.  In addition, she will be open at the end of her presentation to field questions on other topics – taxes, traffic, etc.

Hands-on Service Projects - June Events

By Adam Mihlstin

We have two hands-on community service projects lined up for June.  Please note them for your calendar.  We hope to see a healthy turnout from our members in support of the following events:

  • Saturday, June 2nd @ 10am / Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank – approximately 10 – 12 volunteers to do odd jobs (i.e. pack food, sort clothing, etc.) around the IFCB warehouse.  {The Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank is committed to providing quality food, clothing and other items to its customers. They have a special emphasis on healthy foods and work hard to get fresh, local produce into the homes of its customers.}
  • Saturday, June 16th @10am / Tavon Learning Center – approximately 12 – 15 volunteers to do gardening, landscaping and greenhouse work.  Tavon has a beautiful wooded campus that requires maintenance.  {Tavon Learning Center contributes to the vitality of the greater Seattle communities by providing active learning and community programs that empower adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to acquire home and community skills for living better.}

Please follow up with Adam Mihlstin for any questions related to the two events above.

Student of the Month - Casey Kuloloia

Casey Kuloloia is our Student of the Month and Eastside Academy’s Student of the Year.  Casey joined Eastside Academy, after he sustained injuries as a high-level athlete that made it difficult for him to continue in a large school environment.  It was clear that Casey was a leader as soon as he joined the Academy.  Other students quickly looked up to him thanks to his positive attitude and compassion for those around him.  He also has a brilliant sense of humor, which he balances with a sincerity that is beyond his years.  Casey is an industrious individual, both in the school, where he has grown academically, and outside where he holds down jobs to support himself.  Yet, it is Casey’s love for his family (who were with him this morning) that is combined with a tremendous respect for them that stands out to those who know him.  Casey’s plans for the future will be to pursue a career in real estate and music, which we wish him future success in.
