On December 22nd the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspection will release its decision about whether it will grant permits to King County to build a new children’s jail in Seattle.
Why release this decision during winter break when so few people are in town and/or paying attention? The holidays are a busy time for many, which means few people may take notice of the decision before it is too late to appeal.
Let’s flood their inboxes all week and let them know why it’s hypocritical to say we’re going to make Seattle a Sanctuary City then build a jail to cage our youth!
Mayor Ed Murray and Dow Constantine, King County Executive are both up for re-election in the near future. We, the People, will be sure to let them know how we feel about this if a) the permits are granted and/or b) they do not intervene and prevent the construction of a new children’s jail in our city.
