UPDATE: Mayor, police chief to return to West Seattle Junction on Friday

(WSB photo, November 2018)

ORIGINAL REPORT: In our coverage of Mayor Jenny Durkan‘s South Park walking tour last Tuesday, we mentioned she was expected to be in West Seattle for one this week. That’s now been confirmed; the West Seattle Junction Association says the mayoral visit on Friday afternoon will include a public meeting/conversation at Cupcake Royale (California/Alaska) at 4:30 pm. Durkan has been touring with Police Chief Carmen Best and Fire Chief Harold Scoggins to underscore the importance of public-safety spending while her budget plan is under City Council review; as noted in our daily highlights, councilmembers are looking at the Seattle Police budget this afternoon. Last fall, you’ll recall, the mayor and Chief Best held a community Q&A at Cupcake Royale (WSB coverage here).

TUESDAY: The community conversation is now expected to start at 5 pm.

    The mayor and police chief will have front-row, easy visibility to seeing hundreds if not thousands of drivers violate the law by illegally turning right from California to Alaska during the red light of the all-ways crosswalk. I assure you they will do nothing about it, particularly since Jenny “I Love Cars” Durkan insists that drivers no longer be cited or punished for their increasingly reckless behavior.

    Jort, I think there are far greater concerns that I hope Jenny Durkan observes while she is in our community.

      There are far greater concerns than people’s safety? Eeesh.

    I contend they do these walking tours and community conversations on a Saturday or Sunday when most people aren’t working.

Sorry, comment time is over.
