Mayor Nickels V. Seattle Night Life

Posted by on November 1 at 18:32 PM

Ha! Mayor Nickels just sent out this press release:

City of Seattle Date: Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2005

Time: 10 a.m.

Location: Norman B. Rice Conference Room,
7th Floor, City Hall,
600 Fourth Ave.

Description: Mayor Greg Nickels will discuss the city’s efforts to ensure the growing number of clubs and bars remain a safe, vital part of Seattle neighborhoods. He will be joined by Councilmember Nick Licata and Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske.


Perfect timing. Tomorrow Amy Jenniges is publishing a scoop in our paper that lays out exactly what the Mayor is doing about clubs and bars in Seattle neighborhoods: He’s using trumped up charges to intimidate them into signing unfair agreements.

Nickels’s press conference should be fun when we ask the mayor to explain what Amy has uncovered. See you there!
