City In Crisis As SeaTac Council Member Blasts Lack of Accountability At Meeting
Our sister site The SeaTac Blog is reporting about how that city is currently going through a crisis regarding some controversial, inappropriate emails, along with councilmembers, city staff and public reactions to the same.
Here’s an excerpt from Greg Wright’s ongoing coverage:
In closing comments to Tuesday night’s Regular Council Meeting, Council Member Pam Fernald read from a lengthy prepared statement regarding the lack of official City response to public disclosure of e-mails exchanged between Council Member Mia Gregerson, City Human Services Manager Colleen Brandt-Schluter, and others.
The e-mails, dating from 2009 and 2010, were obtained through a public records request filed by SeaTac citizen Mike Siefkes in 2010. At that time, City Manager Todd Cutts initiated an independent investigation resulting in a formal reprimand to Brandt-Schluter. The City’s legal department completed the disclosure of the requested records in September of this year.
