Recent stories from Seattle

I am a regular contributor to KUOW 94.9FM, an NPR affiliate located in Seattle, and also contribute local stories to Marketplace from American Public Media.

Recently I’ve reported on the proposed expansion of the Washington State Convention Center in three stories (story one, story two, story three), marijuana revenue, an idea to fund affordable housing, and Democracy Vouchers.

I also reported a long-form feature on clean up at the Gorst Creek Landfill for the show Sound Effect on KNKX radio.

BURLINGTON — Against a backdrop of blackberries ripening in the afternoon sun, about 100 striking migrant farmworkers at Sakuma Bros. Farms chanted and protested here Wednesday after wage negotiations with the company broke down and the latest work stoppage entered a third day.

The workers say Sakuma has threatened to evict them from company-owned housing if they don’t return to work.
