Roxana Pardo Garcia, Don & Charlette Berg voted ‘Citizens of the Year’ by Burien City Council Monday night

These two choices were made because both “demonstrated commitment to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.” Garcia left her job during a pandemic to create Alimentando el Pueblo, a campaign to distribute culturally relevant food items to the Highline area of King County: “To follow a vision of bringing a culturally relevant food drive to members of the Latinx in a hyperlocal area. She is an organizational genius as well as a visionary.”
