Oct 29, 2015 emmakaye commented on Library Board Votes Against New Logo and Name Change. Here's What Happened at the Board Meeting..
Tre Maxie was out of line blaming the media about what the rebranding was. The library shot themselves in the foot with the survey that focused on a mealy mouth motto, weird symbolic representations, and the whole 'ies' thing. I'm at my local branch at least once a week, and the first I heard about rebranding was with the survey. If they have been working on this for 2 years as Maxie said last night (yes, I was there), they were really quiet about it. I think we'd better keep a closer eye on this and attend more Bd mtgs.

@15 - sorry but state law prevents SPL being annexed by KCLS. It has to do with population and Seattle is way over the allowed threshhold.

Otherwise, I am just shaking my head at the stupidity of this project. I have sent an email to the Bd of Trustees - library.board@spl.org - saying so. I hope everyone will take a moment to do so as well. Better yet, plan on being at the Board meeting on the 28th @5.

I live in the 36th, and I will NOT be voting for Gael. Sometimes your gut tells you what's right. And my gut tells me that Gael is only interested in Gael--she doesn't care a whit about anything else or anyone else. Why should we voters give her a boost she does not deserve?

Sometimes I have to vote by my gut. With Gael, it says she is first, foremost, and only interested in Gael. She won't represent the 36th; she will (if elected--I hope not) represent her future progress in elective office only.

I live in the 36th, and I certainly will NOT vote to elect Gael Tarlton.
