A Second Council Member Responds

As a part of our coverage of the broken-down contract talks between the city of Seattle and the Seattle Police Officer's Guild and what it means for the 29 proposed police misconduct accountability recommendations submitted by the mayor's review board, we've sent out requests to city council members to see what their thoughts are about the possibility of the reforms making it through the battle between the union and the city.

The first council member to graciously answer our questions was Nick Licata, who also gave us permission to publish his response, which was posted here. There was also one other response from another city council member, however that council member did not give us express permission to publish that response, even though it was a reasonable and pretty non-controversial statement... and this site will only publish information given to us by a third party with express permission of that party.

But, I understand really. After all, I'm deathly afraid of the Seattle Police Guild and their members myself and can only imagine the kind of political power they wield as well. So, even if you don't believe it, thank you for the time you took to respond, it is appreciated.
