Council Member - Mike O'Brien

This week Mayor Ed Murray and Councilmember Mike O'Brien introduced legislation that will create 6,000 units of affordable housing throughout Seattle. The proposal comes from the Mayor and City Council's 28-member Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda advisory committee, and has been hailed as a "Grand Bargain" between affordable housing advocates and real estate developers.
When Mayor Murray announced his housing plan and the report from the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda advisory committee in mid-July, it was pointed out that the proposals will roll out over a period of up to two years. Two of the first proposals to be pursued were detailed today by Mayor Ed Murray and City Councilmember Mike O'Brien, whose announcement says they're expected to "create 6,000 units of affordable housing" in the city as part of what was called a "grand bargain" involving developers and housing advocates.
It's time for the rubber to meet the road at City Hall where officials are aiming to create 20,000 new units of affordable housing in Seattle over the next decade. Mayor Ed Murray and Council member Mike O'Brien were set to announce new housing legislation Tuesday that will create 6,000 those units over ten years.

Council Member - Bruce Harrell

Almost immediately after news broke yesterday that gun rights and firearms industry groups had filed a lawsuit against Seattle's gun and ammunition tax, the gun prohibition lobbying group, Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility , was lamenting that these groups were engaging in "obstructionist tactics." What is "obstructionist" about expecting the City of Seattle to comply with the state's 32-year-old preemption statute? That might be a question for City Councilman Bruce Harrell to answer, since he's the fellow whose campaign statement in the Seattle Times the other day included this: "Seattle must be free to impose reasonable gun safety laws.
