As president of the Seattle chapter of the Richard Conlin Haters Club, it is my solemn obligation to post this link to this December press release:
RICHARD CONLIN WILL SERVE AS COUNCIL PRESIDENT
SEATTLE — Councilmember Richard Conlin, who chaired the Council’s Transportation Committee for the past four years, will lead the Seattle City Council as president for the two year term, 2006-2007…
“I am very excited about this opportunity,â€ť said President Richard Conlin, “to work with my colleagues to serve the people of Seattle. This is a seasoned and skilled Council. I am confident that we will continue to creatively and responsibly meet the challenges of Seattle’s future.â€ť
My vote for council president, if I had one, would be for Nick Licata—even though he’s wrong, wrong, wrong about the Viaduct. Go Nick!
