Mayor Jenny Durkan is MIA!

Roughly 36 hours ago, in the infamous CHOP/CHAZ area on Capitol Hill, there was a shooting. One person died and one is still at Harborview.

This is what we have all been fearing when neighborhoods are called upon to “police themselves,” and our first responders cannot do their jobs.

So far, there has been nothing but silence from City Hall, and the Mayor’s office.

Nothing to calm our fears and anxiety. Nothing to let us know that things are — or will be — under control. Nothing to reassure us that someone is in charge. No plans, no strategy, no leadership.

It’s just disgusting!

Our Mayor is MIA!

This is unacceptable, and I know I’m speaking for the vast majority of Seattle citizens.

Our Mayor has turned her back on us, the “non-vocal majority”, and continues to cater and coddle to the whims of the “vocal minority”.

This is becoming home for many, and people are moving in.

Even worse, our Fire Department, had to wait blocks away from the shooting incident, until the police could safely escort them to the emergency.

What happens if there is a medical emergency, a heart attack, or an automobile accident, mugging, or rape? Who’s going to respond then?

I bumped into Mayor Durkan several times during her campaign for Mayor. She knew who I was, and excitedly talked about how she was such a fan of mine and the Seattle Supersonics, “way back in the day”.

Mayor Durkan….I don’t need a fan, I need leadership from you, and your City Hall.

If you don’t want to lead, resign and get out of the way!
