HAPPENING NOW: Tell city reps what matters to you in the mayor’s Seattle Police Chief search

Until 7:30 pm, you’re invited to stop by Southwest Teen Life Center (2801 SW Thistle) and talk with city reps about Mayor Jenny Durkan‘s search for the next Seattle Police Chief. Just a few people were there when we stopped by in the early going, so your comment(s) will certainly be heard. You can read more about the search process here; there’s a quick online survey here; see who’s on the selection committee here.

    Let’s start with you can’t moonlight in another country while working as chief

    Best qualified only, please do not put in a chief based on gender, orientation, race, etc.

    I want a Police Chief who will arrest everyone at SDOT responsible for the terrible condition of our roads in West Seattle.

    Please get someone who will arrest illegal protestors. Then we can all get to work on time to support our families and pay city out of control tax hikes.

    The first public neighborhood meeting in this series, in South Park, was announced to the public the same day.  The whole process is a sham, with a bloated selection committee.  They don’t care what the citizens think.  Durkan will do whatever she wants, and there will be even less police protection in the neighborhoods when she’s done.

      The meetings indeed were poorly publicized/noticed. I only had the SP and WS meetings in our calendar a few days in advance because I happened onto a mention somewhere online – not sent to us as a news release, etc., which for something of this magnitude, should have been. An advisory finally went out from the mayor’s office hours before the SP meeting.

    As the Pogo cartoonist was quoted “We have met the enemy and he is us”.

    A PC that will treat everyone equally, rich, poor, black, white, asian. 

    Enforce the law equally, littering is illegal fine all litterers, parking on a public street in the same spot for more than 72 needs to be strictly enforced, illegal camping ditto.  Bike thieves need to be aggressively pursued and arrested.

    Treat criminals like criminals, stop coddling them.

    What a loaded questionnaire, it’s like, do you want the Chief to be just Progressive or Super Progressive.

Sorry, comment time is over.
