Seattle’s Matriarchy? The Stranger!

Posted by on November 15 at 18:22 PM

The Sierra Club is hosting a postmortem panel on the monorail tonight at 7:30 p.m. at REI (222 Yale Ave N.)

I was asked to be on the panel, but notice anything about this list:

• Tim Ceis- Seattle Deputy Mayor
• Nick Licata - Seattle City Council Member
• Richard Conlin - Seattle City Council Member
• Josh Feit - Columnist at The Stranger
• Ken Jacobsen - State Senator from the 46th District
• Ed Murray - State Representative from the 43rd District

Here’s a couple of hints: Why not Council President Jan Drago instead of Council Member Nick Licata?
Why not State Senator Jeanne Kohl-Wellesa monorail board member, instead of Murray or Jacobsen? And why not SMP board chair Kristina Hill or board member Cindi Laws?

Six white guys sitting around talking about trains seemed unbearable, so Stranger reporter Erica C. Barnettour transportation reporterwill be representing The Stranger.

Up with the matriarchy, dudes.

And another thing about the panel: Why is it overloaded with famously anti-monorail voices? Richard Conlin? Tim Ceis? Ken Jacobsen? Ed Murray?
