The Maple Leaf Community's Save Waldo campaign has been blessed with help from many different people and organizations. If you have a minute, please send them a note thanking them for their help.

County Councilman Bob Ferguson
Bob is not only our representative on the King County Council, he's a Maple Leaf resident. His support of the Save Waldo campaign has been fabulous. He's spoken at our community meetings, made his staff available to assist us, and testified at our Landmark Nomination hearing. Please send Bob an e-mail thanking him for his help.

City Councilman Richard Conlin
Councilmember Conlin spoke at our first community meeting on Waldo Hospital, sharing with us ideas and contacts. His staff has been an important resource inside City government, helping the community make the right contacts, attending key meetings, and being very good about keeping lines of communication open with our community. Please send Councilmember Conlin an e-mail thanking him for his support.

Washington Historic Trust
In May 2007, the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation chose Waldo Hospital as one of the most endangered historic sites in the state. The organization sent a letter supporting the community's Landmark Nomination and representatives testified in front of the Landmark Board. Additionally, they've been a great source of strategic and other information about the landmark process.

Sierra Club
The Seattle chapter of the Sierra Club endorsed the Maple Leaf Community's effort to preserve the Waldo Hospital site by sending a letter to Mayor Nickels encouraging him to work with the community.

Seattle Audubon Society
The Seattle Audubon Society endorsed the Maple Leaf Community's effort to preserve Waldo Hospital.

46th Districts Democrats
The 46th District Democrats was one of the first groups to support the Maple Leaf Community's efforts. The group passed a resolution supporting the preservation of Waldo Hospital.

A.T. Still National Osteopathic Museum
Jason Haxton, the director of the museum, and his staff have been a wonderful resource on osteopathy and the early days of the osteopathic profession. So has museum curator Debra Loguda-Summers. Founded by A.T. Still in the 19th Century, osteopathy is seeing a significant resurgence in the 21st century. Their help in determining Dr. Waldo's role in a critical time for this important discipline was invaluable.
