It’s called out of the city…
Amazon.com Inc. is temporarily removing workers from a downtown Seattle office so employees don’t have to travel to an area that’s seen a spate of shootings, carjackings and other violent crimes.
City council is beyond incompetent. It’s made property values outside the city increase much faster than inside the city.
Don’t forget that city council fired the previous police chief over the whole CHAZ debacle. They ordered the police to stand down and let protestors take over a precinct. They claimed she didn’t understand how to deal with minorities. She’s black, so that was hilarious.
After a mob occupied the Capitol Hill area in 2020, voters rejected the city’s left-wing leaderS
It’s amazing that people were surprised by the inevitable consequences of the prior policies. Some people clearly believe there is crime because we have police and jails. If we get rid of the police and jails, then there’d be no crime. I don’t understand how anyone can come to that conclusion.
It’s a darkest before dawn moment?
Voters elected a “moderate” Dem for Mayor and a “R” DA. It’s a start?
The turnout was only 55% though so people still don’t really care enough to at least vote.(Yes I know non-presidential elections always have lower turnout but still.)
Seattle’s new mayor is under pressure to find fast fixes for rising violent crime and homelessness downtown. Will he succeed before tech companies decide to leave for good?
Amazon Housing Equity Fund, which emphasizes aiding households that earn 30% to 80% of an area’s median income, will support the investment. Launched in 2021, the fund has provided $1.2 billion for over 8,000 affordable homes across the Puget Sound region in Washington state, the Arlington, Virginia region and Nashville, Tennessee.
