Councilmember Sally Bagshaw Wins 2014 Public Service Award

Sally Bagshaw and Cathy Tuttle

Seattle City Councilmember Sally Bagshaw has done so much for streets and public space in Seattle, from her support for Sunday Parkways to support for Safe Routes to Parks in the 2014 Parks Legacy Plan. Sally’s office door at Council sports a Seattle Neighborhood Greenways sign and for a while fellow Councilmembers joked she’d have to put a quarter in a jar every time she said “Seattle Neighborhood Greenways”.

Honorable Mentions are also in order for the public official who has most advanced the cause of safe streets in Seattle: 

  • Dongho Chang for being the best City Traffic Engineer in the America!
  • Jim Curtin for simultaneously working on five Road Corridor Safety Projects and Safe Routes to School for SDOT.
  • Councilmember Mike O’Brien for keeping focused on equity issues as a core function of connecting people in Seattle.
  • Bill LaBorde for being cheerful, accessible, and wickedly knowledgeable about how Seattle transportation policy and budgets function.
