State Representative Mike Hope (R-Lake Stevens) announced today that the 100 Ideas for Washington Initiative will launch its first Public Service Announcement this month. Featuring Sarah Hope, this commercial introduces 100 Ideas WA to the general public, via the airwaves, for the first time.
“Empowering citizens to offer ideas that improve the lives of all Washingtonians is the core mission and vision of 100 Ideas WA,” Hope said. “This Public Service Announcement will help raise the profile of 100 Ideas WA, while helping people become aware that there is an effective way in which they can offer solutions and make a tangible difference,” Hope said.
Hope launched the 100 Ideas Initiative, a statewide, nonpartisan project, last month. It seeks the best ideas for the future of Washington directly from the people of the state. Citizens can submit their ideas on the initiative’s website – www.100ideaswa.org
“100 Ideas WA levels the playing field, allowing all citizens to participate in the public square of civic engagement. The 100 Ideas WA platform is about people coming together, offering ideas and improving the daily lives of Washingtonians,” Hope said.
Board members for 100 Ideas WA incorporate individuals from both the private and public sector; such as, Rep. Chris Hurst, Councilman Dave Gosset, Mayor Jon Nehring, Janice Greene (President, NAACP, Snohomish County), Kirke Sievers (Snohomish County Treasurer) and the Hon. Renee Radcliff Sinclair (Strategic Services, Apple Inc.).
In addition to providing an avenue in which people can offer and help implement ideas to improve WA State, 100 Ideas WA will also be offering scholarships to students who submit their best ideas. Many ideas that are submitted will also be featured in the 100 Ideas book, which will be published later next year.
