"Drivers in Seattle now get minimum wage and labor protections to change just approved by the City Council. The council unanimously voted for new labor standards, including pay for reasonable expenses, like reimbursing drivers for personal protective equipment during the pandemic, Co sponsor Theresa Mosquito says it's not just about minimum wage when we have drivers who are tired or not ableto have there. The rest breaks and the labor standards and the clean workplace is that they need it impacts all of us. The minimum wage calculation involves a complex formula involving pay per minute and per mile, but council member Lisa her Bolt says it amounts to a 30% pay increase for ride share drivers.

"Believe it's probably gang involved. The difference. A lot of times we thinking involves union members were involved in teaching our gang members. We don't know. It was a gang beef or was simply somebody hit disrespected somebody sisters, somebody else, and that caused thick emotion. What we find is a lot of times when there's the one shooting there's two or three follow on shootings in definitely trying to intervene stops. Other folks getting hurt? So this is I read this. It's time to fire out banalities implicit of nothing to do with this truce. Mosquito says this is a truly public health issue, gang involved shootings or a public health issue. We need to underscore, the deep need to move forward on, on new gun laws gun prevention, restriction, in Jenny Durkan said, make no mistake. This violence is unacceptable. We investigate hold people accountable. Mature people can feel safe in their communities. I I'm sorry. Maybe this sounds horribly cynical. But a this is gang violence. Not gun violence, as I see it and be. Exactly, what law is going to get a gang member to say wait before I kept the guy, I can't cap them to legal to capitol. What are they going to go the water balloon fights? No. There's going to be anything like that. I do believe when she said a public health problem or a public health concern. What was your exact quote public health issue from a public health issue, Theresa mosquito said it's an issue if you're walking down your street and you're caught in the crossfire now. That's a public health issue. Right. So like getting hit by a car. Is a public health issue. If there's a problem at an intersection the city then steps into said, intersection, that's a public health. That's not a transportation issue. It's health. No. This is a stretch your dying your dying. They would love to make a health issue, because then they could do a whole lot of new things with this. Let's say it's gang issue. Go get the gangs. I think Mitzi sheriff, Joe hick was told me, she really wants to crack down on the gangs. They are there go find the gang members. The, the idea that you that the gang members will still do something illegal, if you make something illegal is true. Yeah. I completely agree with you. I mean this. But if you follow that, logic to national conclusion, we should have zero restrictions on any sort of guns, and that may be what you believe. So it's not I hear where you want to go with this. I think it's not what I want to actually what the law where the logic goes with. I'm not going anywhere with what you said was because they will do illegal stuff. We ought not make it illegal because they're just going to do illegal stuff. That's essentially the premise, no say it again. So the premise is this, Mike, a gang members don't follow the law and going out and spouting outs that we need new gun restrictions aren't going to gang members and the should not do anything and I could finish in what I was gonna say is go to the gang members. And let's go get them on Rico stacked. Statutes, let's get them on that paying minimum wage. This could shut them down for running unlicensed businesses. I talked to copper of the weekend when they go arrest gang members. They find twenty six guns in their in their possession. And they're felons. They charge him with one gun possession. Take the gangs down. You don't need new gun laws. We've got plenty go take the gangs down. But what you did say was, we ought not to do any more restrictions because again members will ignore the restrictions. I will not have quoted, you, I will not Kappa guy now. Right. Sardonically right. So, so. So the point is that if you believe there ought to be no gang. No gun restrictions. Then you're still going to believe that results of a gang. Clearly not what I believe, since I believe that automatic weapons are illegal since I believe we should keep felons from having weapons. A problem to have a discussion about gang gun restrictions anytime someone's know. No treats mosquito comes out in the midst of gang members shooting at one another and says, a it's a public health issue and be hey, you know, it'll stop this gun restrictions. It's insipid aren't going to pay attention to them. So, but it's been called like is, especially in places like Los Angeles. When the when there was a lot of gang violence, it was referred to as a public health issue by both conservatives and by Democrats, this was not kicking both hauling calling it a public health issue does not medically. Bring in some sort of international Health Organization, that's quite repressed gun rights to health issue was actually responding to as it should be because it is a public, and we just had a King County judge decide that the voters get the vote on health related issues. So we can't vote. On gun.

"Day with the Seattle police department was this past Friday, he left the force to commit full time to his run for Seattle city council is a candidate running in district number one that is west Seattle and it's currently occupied by a far left progressive. And Lisa Herbold, Brendan Kolding joins me in studio. Lieutenant thank you so much for coming on. Thank you for having me. Jason was it a tough decision to to call quits at the SPCA. Yes. It was a tough decision. I had a great ten years with the department felt that I was able to do. A lot to support our mission of community service and public safety had some great relationships with a lot of co workers. But. And the strong part of my motivation for running for city council is to support the department officers don't currently feel supported by city council. They need someone on the council that understands law enforcement that understands the dynamics of police work, and I determined that with the five of us in the race, including the incumbent I wasn't going to be able to win. If I tried to hold down two fulltime Jones. So it with the support of my wife and my chain of command. I made the decision to resign from SPD and campaign full-time, and I very excited about that. Well, let's talk about what this actually means. Now that you're no longer an SPD's officer, you can actually talk openly and honestly about your experiences there, and how you feel the council maybe the mayor's office treat, the SPD's. There's a, you know on the books right now, if your current SPD officer, you can't really criticize the department which is why on this show we rely and I grant a non anonymity to. Officers who talked to me because I don't want them getting in trouble for speaking out on some just basic stuff. Correct. So you get to let's get right into it. Why do you think this current Seattle city council does not best reflect how they could actually support you guys? Well, because for some reason it's been very much in vogue to demonize the police in the city. That's not reflective of the majority of the citizens. It's for some reason, it's something that as an elected official you're able to get away with because there's a sentiment that they choose to appeal to that the police are a problem that the police are even if they recognize the police as a necessary department that. They're the ones who are responsible for. The outcomes that may that may not appear. Well, let's be more directly. Didn't SPD officers have been called racists, bigots who murder black people with vanden. They've been called that. And for some reason, they council members can get away with that. But we need a council that could that supports law enforcement. How has Lisa herbal been dealing with the PD in your opinion. I'm aware that she's well she was the first one to place her vote on the contract. And she did it begrudgingly. She. Whereas the budget chair she from what I understood denied additional funding for the national team she between her and Theresa mosquito. They tried to go after and cut some significant portions of the budget that would have cut I believe nine maybe seven staff members. We've got the details over dot com. And also another thing she did was she sponsored legislation that codified the department's policy on citizens recording officers, which was already consistent with law. But for some reason, she chose to publish legislation that would effectively. Put officers or risk of criminal liability. More a mistake related to somebody who's recording them, which is still somewhat of a gray area. Legally it is a little bit in the state. Let's talk about this idea that the mayor put forward a fifteen thousand dollar signing bonus for lateral officers. That means officers folks coming from different departments coming into the SPD's part of the reason why they're doing this. And it was just signed into law today. It was approved by the council last Friday. They're doing this because we've seen a historic amount of officer separation from the SP, you haven't told total I believe it was one hundred and ten last year which to quote, the HR director over at SPD's. That's historically large. Do you think simply throwing some dollars? At know. The recruitment issue is going to solve the reason why officers actually leaving. No in short term. Sure, it will increase our ability to hire. It's fifteen thousand for laterals. It's seventy five hundred for new recruits. So that can only help our ability to bring in officers, but it won't help us retain the officers. We already have it won't inspired the officers that we get from this program to not leave in two or three years. And ultimately, it denies the fact that it's not just about money. It's about the way an officer feels he's treated by the city council. It's about the risky feels he puts himself at by doing proactive. Police work by doing the job. He's been hired to do and trained to do. And it. Immune response to your question. It it will assist. Our numbers in the short term a little bit. But long-term, we need a supportive city. Government Brendan cold in Kolding joining me in studio his website. If you wanna learn more about his race, Brendan Kolding dot com. Kolding spelled with a K. Are you someone who would be able to work with Shama Sawant, who is very much? A cop critic if you were to be elected, I will work with whomever is left on the council when I'm there are hold my ground. I won't won't pander Tanny, buddy. But I'm definitely willing to collaborate to make sure we get the job done. So let's talk about some of the other issues beyond treatment of the council towards SPD. Let's talk about transportation, especially since district. One is west Seattle, which means every single day getting to and from work is an absolute nightmare. If you happen to work in the city of Seattle. What can be done about congestion? Well, we need public transportation options that are reliable. That serve people in a manner that makes it feasible for them to walk from their home to the bus stop or the light rail. Stop when that happens. We also need to do things. Like incentivize carpooling, we need to make it. So we need to do what we can to mitigate the traffic a lot of people have concerns about what we've done downtown with our with our vehicle lane. Sometimes converting them into bike only lanes and a lot of people in west Seattle have told me that they sure they bike to work, but they don't necessarily need half a second avenue. You know, we need to have solutions in the city for transportation that basically make it feasible for people to get to work in a timely fashion. Whether that involves public transportation or a personal vehicle homelessness is obviously something that is an issue for this entire city. West Seattle is not a portion of Seattle that doesn't deal with its own set of problems Joe win as a state Representative who was from west Seattle, and he's pushing forward with the city of Seattle legislation that basically gets rid of environmental review. So that cities without any public feedback can just set up a homeless encampment for up to two hundred beds for up to three years, which to me seems ludicrous. What do you have to say about this council, and this mayor's office that seemed to just not care about community engagement on this topic? Well, I think there's there's two issues there one is the lack of community engagement really it's it's insulting to the community members because they have an interest. In their local community. They have an interest in seeing parks that are safe that don't have needles in them. They have an interest in not smelling the refuse from these RV's that are out there. And also what shortsighted about that is. These are not long-term solutions. What concerns me the most about these encampments whether they be tented camp minutes, RV parking lots. Or what have you is? I don't see an end game. I don't see how we elevate people out of those encampments. Are we saying that if you live in a tent city that's going to be your home for the rest of your life? I would hope no for a number of reasons. But I also think that we as as a city need to think of longer term solutions than just like what well like providing transitional housing for people who are living on the streets. Whether they'd be any camp RV's that have concentrated services where we can plug them into whatever they need whether it be drug and alcohol treatment, whether it be mental health treatment or just some way to connect them back to wherever they came from. To elevate them into a permanent housing situation and off of the street off really into a more dignified environment for themselves de support heroin injection sites. I do not why so calling him safe injection sites. And like, the you call them heroin injection sites. There's no such thing as a safe injection safely inject. They wouldn't need a medical professional on site to care for you in case of an overdose. Exactly. That's like saying we're going to have a safe vehicle crash sites where you can drive your car into a wall going to have medics therefore, you I don't support them because these narcotics are type one narcotics. They're illegal federally there, even a legal at the state and local level for good reason. It's because they're very dangerous. To have designated spots where we're going to offer the opportunity to inject these narcotics. And then if you overdose you'll be revived back to life, essentially, ignores the issue it ignores the fact that people are doing harm to themselves. It also ignores the fact that somehow they're going to get these substances into the facility it's going to create ripple effects if we have these. So as a police officer, I think of okay, what are we going to do with dealers who are in front of the spots. Are we going to say that it somehow illegal to sell narcotics that you can use legally inside? And if so what's the what's the boundary is it legal for two blocks are essentially creating a lawless area. And then another concern, I have is. What if what if people who aren't already addicted feel like this is a place? They can go to experience, you know. I just think I just see nothing might attract a certain well, not only attract drug dealers and drug users drug dealers drug users. But also, I'm concerned about the fact that this could be a place for people to experience feel like they can experience narcotic use in a safe, and we don't want to be encouraging for people. We want people to get plugged in with the medical care. They need to get off these drugs and to improve their quality of life. Not dragged them down. We have only about a minute left just briefly if you can explain to our listeners whether or not officers feel like they can enforce the law when it comes to either drug dealers are homelessness. That's getting out of control officers feel like they're at a great deal of risk by doing that. They know what the laws are and they have training to enforce them. But they also know that these. Situations these allegedly low level encounters when they go bad. It does not bode well for the officer. And the city has traditionally not been supportive of the officers. That's Brendan Kolding.

"Is the part of the story that hasn't been reported true. Because this is breaking news, and I got ahead of myself with glee. Little Freudian slip. Michael Brian is not stepping down. He's just not gonna run. Again. Sim city council person announced today he's out of the race ready. Go. If property crimes committed violence is committed you need to call nine one one. And the very popular man with his constituents Michael Brian wasn't wrong. You do need to call nine one one. Then the police can say one of their staff, and we're not supposed to respond the property crimes. And Michael Brian doesn't want to criminalize poverty et cetera. Then they could say that he was not a very popular cat. I mean, he got reelected a lot Michael is she spent a lot of time in city hall. How crazy is this election? Look to you. Now, I don't know how many how many are left. Lisa herbals left. Who else is left? We've got four there's nine seats total to or not running. So we've got seven seats that are in play four of those seven are actually not rerunning. So now, we're up to four that is definitely going to be new council members and the other three are likely to face challenges. We could see a major turnover the this year man who wants his job who are you people that actually want this job, candy, the people who care. No, I'm serious yoga constantly, you cannot please everybody. And then do you really get any? Anything done, you're constantly spinning your wheels. It seems just idealistic young people with is full of fire bellies full love. I think that's it does want this. Well, a lot of people, and we're gonna probably talk about that a bit next week. There's a there's people keep stepping into the into the breach. Pete. There's a lot of people who feel like, yeah. But I do it differently. And so these are the folks who are lining up now, including a former interim police chief in Seattle. And so we're going to see I think this if you want to know who is the happiest right now, my guess is it's the downtown association or the chamber of commerce because they have felt like this was not a terribly business friendly council. They are certainly ready to back candidates. I think they're doing the pro- the process of doing that and recruiting candidates right now. And so if you and again, even their candidates are going to be in the continuum of of sort of moderate to liberal. I don't think you win as a strong conservative in Seattle in any district. But the other thing that's going to happen. This year is actually it's going to be real district elections with all zoning plan. People are going to have to answer the question about what sort of density. Do you wanna see in your neighborhood? Now, you're not just making decisions citywide anymore. This is going to be the first real district elections that Seattle has had it's the second one. But the first one that's going to function like a district if I was running. I lived in Seattle wouldn't pay taxes. I'd be running on one percent less Harold Arthur here winner because everyone else's one hundred percent one percent to win. Right. How about just one percent less? Harold one percent less sanity. We will. We will respond to property crimes are or how about this. We're just going to enforce drug laws. I was just going to force them. Just don't even take just heroin. We're just gonna force herald laws. That's it. I promise like five arrests or something like that do that and create some common sense because they know the business people are excited, I think they should be. I think there's been sort of an anti-business atmosphere with is this other guy. You mentioned the former police chief, Mike if you met Jamali, so he was FBI spymaster went out to try to catch Russians on MSNBC as an analyst. He's running to be on the city council. This be pretty unique describes himself as a liberal progressive. But I have yet to hear a liberal ideas from him he seems to be very strong on crime et cetera. He's another guy who's join his hat into the ring. You guys met is fascinating guy. I've not met him meaning all of them. I hope so I'd like to have a whole dance off. Do you think ticket to a talent show something like that that we could bring him in? There's not just the political talent. But maybe some actual raw talent sitting council member. Theresa mosquito. Talked about away candidates are paying for their campaigns. They're they're called democracy vouchers its tax on property owners in Seattle. Gets passed onto commission who then passes them on the people who then pass them on to council members or I should say politicians. It's really you on this flyer. You're here at my door. And I was like yes introducing myself, and I'm running as a democracy voucher candidate. And they would say hold on. I'll be right back. They'd find the democracy vouchers in pile on their table of mail, and they'd come back, and they fill it out there right at the door. Then if I was out doorbell laying in the evening for three hours or so I would walk away with five six seven hundred dollars on my own. Sometimes this puts limits and look campaigns can do and there's some opinions about it. I have an opinion. But I'm gonna hold that. And talk about some of the limits that are placed on campaign, so people sign up lists herbal signed up. She's the name I recognized who signed up to take these democracy vouchers. But then I guess that limits the big money they can raise it limits. The money essentially every voter registered voter within the city of Seattle is going to get four hours twenty five dollars each you can spend all of those vouchers on one you can just divide them. Among whom you see fit. It is a way the idea behind it. As a way to get big money out of politics, you accept fairly severe spending restrictions. You get your vouchers there. There were some logistical problems. And actually the campaigns getting reimbursed for the voucher is a lot of stuff you want to know who actually outlined all the problems with them talk to one of democracy voucher winners from last last election, Pete Holmes because he ran and won using democracy vouchers, but he said, it's a it's a it's a it's a flawed system. But he thinks it's a good idea. And so you're going to see a lot of people embracing that the system was set up since very few elections could operate with democracy vouchers. The system was set up. It's actually got a fair pool of money in it right now. Yeah. I guess I look at it from a perspective of spree free speech enthusiast. I like free speech. I've been thinking about getting a radio show like with you guys where we can do free speech for a living. I think this is four speech. Rob McKenna thought it was weird. Former attorney general for some brought that up then he thought about it came back and talk me you said, yeah. This does seem kind of like four speech. So I'm only figure how do you define that? Well, someone's taxing me in. Let's take an example and let let me let me pick the the extreme example, let me pick somewhat K. There's nothing I like about her. I don't respect her. None of our opinions. I agree with you that I can be taxed and that money can end up in her hands nuts filtered through commission, they pay themselves that retirement, their pensions, etc. Than they passed it on to someone and part of that's my money, and it goes to Shamas salon. So then I get the pleasure of being forced to pay for her campaign signs. Not that we didn't do that in Massachusetts city resources for that. But that's what I'm saying that gets passed on. I find it in offensive thing. What I find ironic. An interesting is it was east coast. Big money that paid for this. That partnered with the sideline institute to get this launched so big money from the east coast came into by this campaign and push this campaign. And this is HouseCall. What do you think about taking into consideration? What most of us? Do this stuff. We recycle it. An accident. Multiple times. I just did. Lisa herbal over there. She's looking for you right now, she wants a hundred bucks. But that's what happened. Can I bring some math in a moment? Okay. So your tax on this is less than your vouchers worth. So to your to your worries about funding Shamas inter anyone else's campaign. You get enough vouchers that has like five times four times what your property tech which you were taxed on which is about. He tells you your per one hundred thousand so you're probably taxed forty dollars. And you probably and you're getting one hundred dollars in campaign vouchers, and so with the assumption that a lot of people are not even going to use these things so as you can actually control that that you could actually use all of your vouchers on say you live in Shamas wants say you to live in any Seattle council district. So it's not and you don't pay the tax. So it's not really for you not really much of a problem. But for those who are worried about that sort of thing, you can actually spend your money on the on the person's opponent, whomever. It is that you are opposing strongpoint Mike, and this is going they want to take this statewide. And the fact is that just preferred not be taxed to forced to pay for politicians. I don't like to.
