"Seattle has selected the candidates. Who will move onto the november general election and some of their choices seem to reflect a divide in the city's perspective on criminal justice and policing for example incumbent city attorney pete holmes conceded defeat in his bid for reelection. Meanwhile the mayor announced this week. City workers will be required to get vaccinated against covert nineteen and we've been periodically checking in with the mayor. Jenny durkan because of time constraints though we recorded the conversation. You're about to hear yesterday. And some of what we discussed has since changed but we start our conversation with a discussion about the new vaccination mandate and how the police officers guilt is responding to it. I asked mayor and about the unions claim that it was not consulted before monday's announcement even though members say the decision was a mandatory subject of bargaining her response bested vice. We've got as we said yesterday at the state level county level and the city level. We have to bargain the impacts of this decision but not the decision itself and so we will obviously be with all the unions that are representative city workers reaching out to them to discuss. What the impacts of this vaccination requirement are. I would note a couple of things number one. It is absolutely beyond dispute now that this pandemic is a pandemic of the unvaccinated and every person who makes a decision not to get vaccinated is not just jeopardizing their own health. They're jeopardizing the health of the people around them. They're they're jeopardizing our hospitals in their capacity and they are jeopardizing our ability to stay open as a society. So this vaccination is is about both public health and safety but really also about the real vitality our community. Will you talk about staying open. Are you worried about concerns that the union hinted to in its statement saying that more officers may resign from the already understaffed department in response to your decision. You know. i'm hoping that's not the case. And what i've seen in the last week. Is that really officers have been very committed to doing what they need to do. For public safety in the city of seattle. There's no question that the loss of officers as had a dramatic impact on other officers ability to do their work. It's increased over time. It's increased the response times but at the same time we have seen some really excellent police work in terms of of getting into communities working with community in solving some of the significant crimes. I sit down with chief. Ds every week and we are working very hard to recruit and retain as many good police officers as we can and we were having some success doing so we just had the primary election voters basically saying no to incumbent city attorney pete holmes. What do you think that says about the voters. Take on policing and prosecuting in the city. So i think it's going to be a very interesting debate moving into the fall. I want to emphasize a very small fraction of eligible. Voters voted in this primary. And so the vote in november will be very different vote in historically in seattle engages. Many more people. A lot of people weren't paying attention in august and more people will now but there will be stark contrast between in some of these races between what people want in the future of seattle in terms of approach not just policing foot to public safety. Generally okay and what do you think. The next city attorney's a top priority should be so you know i have to say that That pete holmes has assembled some very talented people in the city attorney's office and they labor day in day out and do a whole range of cases. People usually recognize the city attorney's office only for the prosecution..

Seattle to open more permanent COVID-19 vaccination sites in Rainier Beach, West Seattle, Lumen Field Event Center
"Seattle is setting up permanent mass vaccination sites at the lumine field events center also in rainier beach and west seattle seattle mayor. Jenny durkan says the expansion will reach thousands more vulnerable residents each week and thousands more with enough supplies. And i spoke with mayor durkan about this expansion and why it is so needed here. Despite the fact that seattle was the first to kind of experienced both hospitalization deaths of covid because of the hard work sacrifices that the businesses and residents have made we have for the top thirty cities or so in america the lowest level of disease in hospitalization and part of the reason for that is. We're able to stand up just a first in class testing system. We wanna first in class vaccination system and so we're building the infrastructure to make permanent some of our vaccinations sites and to be able to be one of the first cities in the country to vaccinate all of its residents that need to be vaccinated and of course it requires us to get a steady dose of the vaccines. But it's looking like we will in some very excited. They will make a couple of our vaccination sites permanent We'll stand up a mass vaccination site and we'll open additional sites as time permits well. We're the new mass vaccination site you're talking about coming online. The new the new mass vaccination side is going to be what's now called. Bloomfield used to be centurylink people. Think of where the seahawks play. And how about what's going to be going on at the rainier beach and west seattle facilities those way. We'll make the rainier beach and west seattle facilities permanent vaccine sites It's incredibly important just to be able to reach all parts of our community particularly those who've been hardest hit by the virus and we know clearly from the data that Our communities of color in particular have been hit by cove not just the health impacts but the economic impact and the health impacts have been significantly disproportionate. So i'm very excited. We'll be able to keep that rear beach Facility open and have it as a permanent vaccine location and also very excited that we can keep west seattle open because as you know not only are the number of underserved communities in that area but it also because the west seattle bridge it's access to other parts of the city has been significantly diminished. So we've got to bring the vaccine to the people that need it absolutely. You mentioned the communities of color. Do you know what the vaccination rates are looking like when it comes to inoculating these communities much more percentage of the population. Getting the disease and much lower portion. Actually getting the vaccines. That's why the city of seattle has stepped up and are are. We are really providing that equity lens or vaccinations and really proud of seattle fire department. And all the work. They've done but very proud of the community based organizations who have stood up helped us implement a program so that we've been able to do pop up clinics in the communities for those who've been under served and seventy percent of the vaccinations that we've been able to deliver have been to buy pock community. We're really pushing with our community. Based partners to get those people who might not have access to healthcare. They might be hesitant to get the vaccine or have language barriers and by doing that. We're we're reaching the people that that are most vulnerable and need the vaccine. Will you mentioned hesitancy in the groups that you've had discussions with we've heard a lot about this certain communities of color just being simply afraid to get given the us history and medical practices here in our country. But do you really think it's an issue or are we just talking about lack of access to the vaccine. So i think it is both i think right now because we are in the period where they're scarcity. We're working hard to make sure that we get the shots arms and and and getting them to the right people so using the lens for that soon. I think we will have enough vaccine to deliver. And then we'll have to shift to try to get people who would be hesitant to come. You have to remember that. For the last four years the federal government waged war against are immigrants and refugees. It's hard to then turn on a dime and tell them they can now trust government. And so that's why it's very important to have community based partners that people that speak the language or that are trusted messengers and has the new mapping tool created by the university of washington helped you achieve these goals or is there something more that can better serve these bypass communities the tool has been very helpful because it gives us the actual data showing Vice zip code where the disease is most prevalent and so we can see using that tool that we have not been able to reach some of the communities most at risk for the disease that helps us target zip codes but we still need the community based partners who can work with people that they trust to get them to the vaccine sites.

S. grant it's not because of the civil war it's because you hate America now in San Francisco I don't know what the statute is going down was on federal property or orchestrate a property another law that might apply is the entire Iraq there's other potential federal laws as well unfortunately local authorities should be prosecuting these cases should be stopping the violence in the first place but many of them saying simply unwilling to stand up to the mall right now I want to switch quickly to Twitter you were threatened by a quote low level staffer Twitter last week with the suspension of your account have you heard from Jack Dorsey or anyone in senior management that such attempted censorship will not occur again it is not unconstitutional censorship they're a private company but it is clearly censorship of viewpoints they do not agree with you I must admit this Jack Dorsey's DM my Twitter cal of course you could put him in the boat with the snow flakes in the New York times because it's been reported that he unfollowed you're trying to opinion Twitter account after I published my op ed a few weeks ago that turn them into a laughing stock but it is true that in the midst of that controversy a low level employee contacted my office at random instead if the senator doesn't believe his tweets we will permanently locked his account but it was clear that she was acting at the behest of more senior officials who she tried to scream and if you wouldn't put anything in writing that we struck your we draw a line we sent her the reason why this was a gross violation of their own terms and their own policies we continue to get shifting explanations but the thirty minute deadline came and went in after a couple hours she called back and said will take no action get your kilt although she said but she also wasn't authorized to stand by more so it's clear that she was acting at the behest of senior sensors at Twitter but it's just an example of the challenges that conservatives based on Twitter on social media more broadly look I mean on state senator you can't really be platform center I can always go to the Senate floor I can go to the other medium but what if it was just a conservative journalist or a Republican Party activist how can they stand up this is why I have introduced legislation along with senators Holly ruby on broad the modified section two thirty district away some of that unprecedented legal community that social media companies yet because they are increasingly acting as publishers acting as sensors taking responsibility for the content that is posted in is not close on our site that's the case they're not they don't deserve that immunity related to all that there's a move under way to change the name of military bases around the U.
