Greenwood ped safety advocates speak out

Greenwood resident Andrea Okomski and neighborhood activist Kate Martin took Seattle Transportation to task on its efforts so far on pedestrian safety Tuesday night.

Okomski’s son Joe was hit by a car four years ago when he crossed a four-lane road. Joe, 19, is permanently disabled as a result. Martin is a vocal community activist from Phinney Ridge who is involved in a range of quality-of-life issues, including parks concerns.

Both gave city officials an earful about pedestrian safety taking a backseat to car and bus movement.
