Magazine names Donna Hartmann-Miller as Maple Leaf's neighborhood hero

Maple Leaf now has a “neighborhood hero,” named by Seattle magazine earlier this morning.

She’s Donna Hartmann-Miller, shown here in her trademark Park Suit. (Photo courtesy Dane Doerflinger Photography.)

The magazine piece notes Donna is a member of the Maple Leaf Community Council (as is her husband, David Miller) and works at Maple Leaf Ace Hardware.

The ubiquitous Donna is also a force behind Friends for a Greater Maple Leaf Park (hence the Park Suit, which represents the park as it should be by this summer) and the annual Maple Leaf Parade of Costumes.

It’s the first time the magazine has polled readers to find neighborhood heroes, and it didn’t name any for neighborhoods where not enough residents voted.

Other heroes include Jeff Bezos and Phoenix Jones (as “superhero,” natch).
