Congratulations, Nick Licata!

Yesterday it was announced that our very own city council member, Nick Licata, was chosen to chair a new national organization, called Local Progress, whose goal is to spread successful, progressive legislation from city to city.

This might not be the sexiest work in the world but it is vital—it's exactly the kind of great behind-the-scenes collaboration cities and towns need in order to pass contentious legislation like Seattle's paid sick leave (which some local business owners are still moaning about).

So congratulations, Nick Licata!

While I'm on the subject, everyone in the office agrees that Nick Licata should start doing drag under the name "Lick Ricotta."

What say you, Slog?

You should've specifically told councillor Licata he's not allowed to vote multiple times. He's voted "no no no" 10 times already.

I'm abstaining until some photoshop genius shows us what Lick Ricotta may look like.

So yesterday.

When he first ran for office (in the late 1970's?) his campaign signs got "graffittied" to read: "People Like us Lick Licotta"

Just checked back. Now he's voted 31 times! STOP HIM! The world needs Lick Ricotta. No matter what Nick Licata wants.

(Sounds like he's doing a pretty damn good job, by the way.)

Nick Licata, was chosen to chair a new national organization, called Local Progress, whose goal is to spread successful, progressive legislation from city to city...

Does this mean he's going to stop fighting progressive legislation here in Seattle?

I mention this because I've never recalled Licata to be much of a friend of transit or density. Or at least his friendship ends the moment such changes begin costing anyone anything or inconveniencing anyone in any way. Oh, and he was also pro-viaduct.

To me, Nick Licata's a progressive the way Knute Berger or Joel Connelly is a progressive. He's what I think of as a "regressive progressive."
