I’ll email these to the Seattle mayoral candidates later today. I still haven’t figured out the calendar. I’ve put them here first in case y’all have any more suggestions or tweaks. I’ll update this post to reflect any changes if I make them before sending.
1) In the wake I-502, what will the purchase of marijuana look like within city limits? Will medical marijuana collective garden storefronts in Seattle have to abide by the 1000-foot rule established for I-502?
2) With Metro’s ability to fund itself at the whim of the legislature, what should the city’s role be in public transportation? How do we both make sure we get our fair share, and that the system serves the entire region well?
3) What should the waterfront look like after the Viaduct comes down? Will there be a streetcar or other transit?
4) What should happen in the next 4 years to make sure that police reform both satisfies the Feds, and works for Seattle citizens?
5) When there are police incidents, the response from the top is important. With hindsight, in the wake of John T. Williams being killed by a Seattle police officer what, if anything, should the mayor’s office have done differently what, if anything, did it do right?
