Three previews for the rest of your Tuesday:
SPD CHIEF’S DEPARTURE: Citywide outlets broke the news late last night that SPD Chief Carmen Best is departing, two years after taking over, one day after the City Council’s vote on budget and job cuts. At 11 am today, she and Mayor Jenny Durkan will hold a news conference “to discuss Chief Best’s decision to retire and the future of the Seattle Police Department.” Seattle Channel will stream it here, and we plan to carry the feed.
