Leslie on City Council: “I have been an active advocate for sustainability and local economy since 1992 when I started volunteering for Sustainable Seattle and later for the Business Alliance for Local Living Economy. I love how the design of physical space can encourage the growth of relationships in a community. To live in deeper community with neighbors, I was a founding member of Jackson Place Cohousing (JPC). I had many leadership roles in the development and construction of JPC’s 27 condominium units and common spaces, located just southeast of downtown Seattle. I lived there for eight years until moving to Bainbridge Island. I also volunteered for the Pomegranate Center (“Strengthening Communities Through Creative Collaboration”). I even went all the way to New York City to take a workshop on “How to turn a place around,” from one of my favorite organizations, the Project For Public Spaces. I visited City Repair projects in Portland, Oregon, and have participated recently in that organization’s annual Village Building Convergence.”
