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!

  2. James While I don’t expect you to remember me, I’ve been following some of your blogs, etc and with this one, I thought I should respond. I am in total agreement with you on this and your later one also about Durkan.  (Remember “Nickelsville”?   I think we should rename CHAZ or CHOP or whatever they are calling it today to “Durkanville” or maybe “Savant Village”. Just FYI, we met several times at His Deal years ago, and I volunteered (unfortunately only in a minimum way) for your mayoral campaign. We met in a parking lot near our condo where you brought me campaign materials. So, may I have your permission to forward these two blogs to some of the men in our church and my select list? You make fair and appropriate comments that need a wider audience. As I read this morning’s paper, I see that the “good mayor” intends to clear out the village “in the near future”. Why not today? It’s overdue from the second day they occupied the streets and parks. Sorry I missed your radio interview this morning. I’m sure it went well. By the way, we moved from Seattle to Camano Island in late November, 2017. I still have many roots and long history in Seattle – since 1959 but so glad to be out of that cesspool. We still attend church in Shoreline and make many trips back to Seattle and Shoreline. Keep up the good work. Know that we are continuing to pray for you.
