“I Want to Know Where I’m Going to Be”

Thursday’s Westpark meeting was short on answers and that wasn’t a surprise. Read Friday’s story. Event organizers said the event would open the door to public comment and questions and would not be the time when concrete plans were in place.

Thoughtful questions came from the audience. Some were answerable, some were not.

One audience member said after the meeting she thought the underlying question for many of the residents was, “What’s going to happen to me?” I quoted Michael Brown (see this entry’s headline) asking essentially that question. He wasn’t disappointed, however, that the answer is not available yet.

Residents seemed reassured by Sharon Shrader’s comments about Bremerton Housing Authority’s mission being to provide affordable housing.

The answers to how just aren’t available yet. Leaving the meeting, housing authority interim Executive Director David Gitch said, “We’ll get them.”
