The election outcomes for town of Seattle usually are not stunning. We elect council members and the mayor to maintain town. As liberals, we selected candidates in the previous few elections we entrusted to maintain town in a humane and compassionate method. The Metropolis Council forgot its job and forgot all concerning the residents of Seattle, the owners, renters and enterprise homeowners, and acted for essentially the most half as if we weren’t solely unimportant however that we barely exist besides as a tax base.
The candidates working on the progressive platforms echoed this uncaring perspective by espousing positions of not implementing misdemeanors like shoplifting and unwillingness to clear homeless camps from parks. These coverage positions are unfair and uncaring about individuals who dwell and pay hire or mortgages or personal and run companies in Seattle. These coverage positions additionally haven’t improved the lives of those that are homeless, substance addicted and the mentally unwell.
I hope newly elected officers hear the message, do their job, maintain our metropolis, implement the legislation, help small companies and repair the homeless disaster, and do it humanely and with compassion, however do it.
