PRIOR CORRELATED VOAT THREADS ON THE MATTER OF - SEATTLE MAYOR ED MURRAY:
FURTHER RESEARCH BELOW, DONE BY ME (FURTHMORE RESEARCH IS NEEDED - HELP IS APPRECIATED):
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray backs Clinton because she ‘understands big-city issues’ - Mar 22, 2016
“I’m endorsing her because she was a U.S. senator who understands big-city issues,” he said. “Whether we’re working the minimum wage, or affordable housing, or homelessness, we’ve got to take this stuff to scale, and we need a partner in the White House who can continue to work with us and who can actually get some things done.” Murray’s endorsement could anger many of his constituents; Seattle is a hotbed of support for Sanders, contributing more dollars to his campaign, per capita, than any other large city in the country, according to an analysis by The Seattle Times. “I hope folks don’t judge me on one endorsement,” the mayor said, touting his work on Seattle’s $15-an- hour minimum-wage ordinance and other measures… Murray said he would have endorsed Vice President Joe Biden instead, if Biden had run. But he’ll introduce Clinton to supporters Tuesday night at Rainier Beach High School… The mayor said he expects Sanders to win Washington’s Democratic caucuses and Seattle in particular. But he noted that other big-city leaders have endorsed Clinton.
Roger Nyhus Turned his Capitol Hill Mansion into a Political Powerhouse - JUNE 2016
The house Clements was creating also demanded a more private purpose, evident in Nyhus’ elegantly encapsulated residence on the top floor, which includes a master bedroom, en suite bathroom and a hidden room behind the bookcase. “He really wanted a secret room,” says Clements with a laugh. “As I look back, I think it makes total sense. Part of wanting a space that was really 100 percent private is because so much of his life is public…I think, psychologically, it’s important for him to have that.”
Nyhus’ grand living room has hosted countless VIPs from Mayor Ed Murray to the British ambassador to the U.S.
For Nyhus, managing personal, political and business interests is a constant balancing act. He’s worked with high-profile clients like Alaska Airlines as well as controversial energy product clients. “In my personal political life, I support Democratic causes, but in my business world, we work with a lot of different folks,” he says, “and in my business world, I reach across the aisle.”
At home, the White House has already attracted a political who’s who, from U.S. Senator Patty Murray to Mayor Ed Murray (his first mayoral fundraiser was there) to Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook. In August, the state’s entire Democratic House delegation is expected to show up for a “New Dems” soiree. Nyhus also puts on a regular “CEO Salon” series and ensures that a plethora of nonprofits, from local arts and parks to global health initiatives, benefit from White House events. For example, the South Lake Union–based, globally focused PATH organization. “It’s a great gathering spot,” says PATH CEO Steve Davis. He compares the house to D.C.’s famous social circuit. “There’s usually a dinner at a very elegant home in Georgetown with a mix-and-match of people. The conversations are quite interesting because you’re sitting next to somebody who’s an ambassador from X, as well as some congressman, or some scientist working at the NIH. Roger’s house has that same feel.”
In Frantic Texts, Mayor Threatened to "Pull Police Off Enforcement" If Council Moved Forward with Jungle Plan - Jun 6, 2016
After Mayor Ed Murray unveiled a plan to clear the homeless encampment under the I-5 freeway known as the Jungle, the mayor issued a threat to City Council Member Sally Bagshaw if she proposed an alternative approach with a stronger focus on connecting the homeless to social services: "I will stop all cleanups throughout the city and pull police off enforcement.”
Murray released his Jungle-clearing plan on May 17, arguing that the area is too dangerous to remain open. A city assessment reported high levels of violence there, including sexual assault, and Murray’s office says there have been 92 calls for emergency response in the Jungle since the start of the year. The plan called for all of the Jungle’s estimated 200 to 400 homeless residents to be cleared from the area under I-5 in about two weeks, and for the Union Gospel Mission to offer shelter and services in the meantime.
On Saturday, May 22 at 8:16 p.m., Murray texted her with an implicit threat. "If you do a resolution on homelessness restricting our ability to deal with the rapes and other violent crime and the bike chop shops down there in the jungle," Murray said, "I will stop all clean ups throughout the City and pull police off enforcement. We are losing the ability to control our streets."
“Murray is a bully,” one city council staffer who wished to remain anonymous told The Stranger. “He yells at his co-workers all the time, and most people become afraid of him.”
Here’s the text exchange. Nine days later, the council passed its resolution on the Jungle:
Saturday, May 21
Ed Murray 7:27 p.m.: This is Ed Murray could you call me at [number]
Sally Bagshaw 7:34 p.m.: Tomorrow ok? Otherwise 19:30
Murray 8:16 p.m.: If you do a resolution on homelessness restricting our ability to deal with the rapes and other violent crime and the bike chop shops down there in the jungle, I will stop all clean ups throughout the City and pull police off enforcement. We are losing the ability to control our streets.
Bagshaw 9:02 p.m.: Is this really from you Mr. Mayor?
Murray 9:12 p.m.: Yes.
Murray 9:54 p.m:. Still trying to reach you. Time difference and we are coming back early so tracking all day tomorrow
Murray 10:04 p.m.: …we are coming back early which means I will be on a plane all day. So I need to speak with you this evening Seattle time. I am getting media calms [sic] that you are leading a council effort to stop our efforts in the jungle. I am so stunned so I should talk with you before I respond.
Sunday, May 22
Bagshaw 3:45 a.m.: ...I am still gathering information and community comments. I will definitely share a draft with Mike Fong, Scott, Anthony, Maggie, and Leslie for their input as well. Have a safe flight.
Murray 3:47 a.m.: I assume it is 4am in the morning so I won't call now. I am absolutely taken aback by your lack of collaboration. Don't get it.
Murray 4:11 a.m.: So I will stay up until I hear from you
Murray 1:29 p.m.: Still waiting to hear from you
Murray 10:46 p.m.: Scott Lindsey [sic] said you won't speak with me because I will yell at you. I have always been with staff when I meet with you and I have never yelled at you.
Murray 10:46 p.m.: I have been forceful in my profound disagreement with you on how to approach homelessness, based on the consultants critique of the city.
Murray 10:46 p.m.: I am now going to skip s [sic] flight in an attempt to reach you.
Murray 10:46 p.m.: Sally I don't know what is going on, but for the sake of the City will you please speak with me?
Bagshaw 10:56 p.m.: I just tried to reach you. I am planning to meet Hyeok and Mike and Scott early Monday.
