Not really sure that the Chamber got its money's worth for those recommendations since there already is an aggressive panhandling ordinance and a sidewalk obstruction ordinance. Seattle Municipal Code 12A.12.15. Why try and create a new law when there's already a good one on the books? It sounds like an enforcement, not a legislative, problem.
commented on Interim Police Chief Apologizes for Video Mocking the Homeless
Pugel was appointed two and a half weeks ago and obviously didn't raise the video during the vetting process before the announcement. Good for Pugel for responding to @10's question a couple of weeks later, but you have to wonder about why it took so long, and whether the Mayor's office even knew this was coming.
