The Seattle Police Department (SPD) is doing its best to
keep up with a spike in violent crime this summer — or at least that’s
the report Chief Kathleen O’Toole recently gave during a press
conference that focused mostly on gang activity in the city.
On Aug. 20, I was informed of the final proposed routing for the No.
11 East Madison and the other buses involved in the proposed March 2016
Metro and Sound Transit changes for the light rail expansion.
Every year, taxpayers in Seattle pay for millions of dollars
of emergency medical care for people who have been shot. It’s time for
the gun industry to chip in to help defray these costs.
The good news is that we will get 15-minute service on
Metro Transit’s No. 11 East Madison Street bus this September due to
Proposition 1 funding. The bad news is that there is currently a proposal floating around that would remove the No. 11 from Madison.
