    New Fire Chief confirmed: Monday afternoon, the Council voted unanimously to confirm Harold Scoggins as the next Chief of the Seattle Fire Department. Scoggins served as a firefighter for 25 years in Glendale, California, serving as Fire Chief there since 2008.

  • 23rd/Jackson pedestrian zone: Pedestrian zone legislation we discussed in a previous notes edition will be on the table again Tuesday afternoon along with a community-driven amendment to include the area around 23rd and Jackson in the plans.
  • Screen Shot 2015-04-20 at 4.53.24 PMPosition 9 replacement candidates: The 44 have (somehow?) been cut to eight:
    The finalists, listed here in alphabetical order, are:·         Jan Drago

    ·         Noel Frame

    ·         Sharon Lee

    ·         Sharon Maeda

    ·         David Moseley

    ·         John Okamoto

    ·         Sheley Secrest

    ·         Alec Stephens

    “Finalists were selected based on their understanding of city government and the public policy issues associated with the Council’s Committee on Housing Affordability, Human Services and Economic Resiliency; their demonstrated commitment to social justice and the ability to communicate and collaborate effectively across cultures and with diverse populations; and their desire to serve the people of Seattle and assume the responsibilities and accountability inherent in the work of a Councilmember,” the Council announcement on the matter reads. You can submit comments about potential appointees via email at council@seattle.gov or at upcoming meetings on April 24 or 27.

It’s curious that O’Brien is the senior council member yet he gets second billing to Sawant for the meeting. Is he now her sidekick?
