Forum

I’m Anna Mockler, and I’m running for Bremerton City Council District Six. My platform is based on your hopes and concerns as you spoke to me on your doorsteps. The short version of my platform is on the Campaign page; the long version is on the Issues page.

This page is a forum for courteous discussion, comments, questions, concerns. I’ll check it every evening and respond.

  1. Anna, as a citizen of District 6, I support your campaign for city council wholeheartedly and was disappointed to see you lose in 2019. What changes will you make to your campaign this time to ensure that you will unseat the current member of District 6 in this unprecedented half-term rematch? The current member of District 6 is, in my opinion, at best, an irresponsible, ignorant, carpetbagging gadfly. Thank you!

    • Thank you for your support — I too was disappointed. It’s tough to doorbell in a pandemic, so I’m increasing social media presence, fund-raising for costs of mailing flyers, and NOT taking August off as I did in 2019. Basically, I keep working on issues useful to the community, like getting Public Recognition moved back to the top of the City Council agenda, making 13th & Wycoff a 4-way stop, making sure Lulu Haddon Park is safe for all, attending meetings for the Callow Ave revival, etc. If you have any other suggestions, please make them!

    • Yes, Arvon Park is a weird one. The story I keep hearing — from friends, neighbors, and Parks Dept — is that it was given to the City by a spiritualist church and the constraints on using it are huge. One friend who lives on Bloomington tried to use it for community gardens, over a decade ago, and that couldn’t happen. Why they installed a playground that is quietly deteriorating behind a fence, I couldn’t tell you.
      District Six totally needs more parks. Even a pocket park like Arvon would be a great add.
      Did that answer your question?

  2. I like your suggestion. The issue isn’t snarling traffic. The issue is possible accidents since too many drivers turning left onto Warren from 13th (from the west) ignore the right of way of drivers for going straight across on 13th from east to west.

  3. I am concerned about the intersection of 13th and Warren Avenue. Too many people who turn left onto Warren Avenue ignore the right of way for those drivers staying straight on 13th.

    • You’re talking about 13th west of Warren, yes? Let’s try the low-tech solution first. Let’s get those two lanes clearly edged with street paint, arrows in the middle of each one: Left-turn and straight ahead/right-turn. That works elsewhere in the City. You can use the Bremerton1 app; you can call DPW; you can email the Mayor. I’ve never had trouble at 13th and Warren, so I can’t describe how traffic snarls there.
