The new Seattle City Light director Mami Hara was welcomed by the local community last Friday at Nagomi Tea House in the International District. Hara was nominated by the Mayor in July and approved by the council in September to oversee utility, water, sewage and drainage services for 1.3 million customers in Seattle and 26 municipalities.
Hara is well-known in storm water management, having served for Philadelphia Water, especially for the Green City, Clean Waters program.
“I am so happy to be a part of your community,” she said. “…I hope we work together to continue to make Seattle the best place to live.”
