JULY 14, 1997
Don Brocha, Woodinville's Deputy Mayor, announced last week he will be filing for re-election to the city council this fall. "I'm happy with the direction the city has been going and with what we've been able to accomplish. However there are a few things I would like to see to completion before I leave office," Brocha said. He said he would like to see the city develop a downtown master plan and resolve the C.A. Sorenson complex issue in the next few years.
"I would like to make the downtown a place to come, not just to shop, but to meet and participate in 'meaningful activities,'" he said, pointing out area ballfields and parks already in place.
Brocha (pronounced Bro-shay) is a software engineer with ATL in Bothell. He has lived in Woodinville for the past 12 years and with his wife has a son and daughter. He was involved with the Leota-Wellington Association which looked at King County's Northshore Plan in 1989. He said frustration with the county led to his involvement in incorporation and the city council.
