City Council Quarterly

The Seattle City Council has publicly disagreed with Mayor Mike McGinn on several controversial issues already this year. Council President Richard Conlin has refused to debate the Mayor about possible cost–overruns related to the downtown tunnel. Many Councilmembers have expressed their support for the current 520 bridge proposal (without the light rail study that the Mayor wants). Last week the council failed to overturn a Mayoral veto on their anti–aggressive panhandling bill. How will the relationship between the Mayor and the council affect the city's agenda for the year? Councilmembers Tim Burgess and Sally Bagshaw join us for our quarterly council check–in. Plus we check in on the weekend weather forecast with Cliff Mass.


Tim Burgess is chair of the Public Safety and Education committee, vice–chair of the Built Environment committee, and a member of the Transportation committee of the Seattle City Council. He's been on the City Council since 2007. Burgess attended Lincoln High School and the University of Washington.

Sally Bagshaw is chair of the Parks and Seattle Center committee and the Waterfront Planning committee. She is vice–chair of the Public Safety and Education committee. She previously served as Chief of the Civil Division for the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.

Cliff Mass is a UW Atmospheric Scientist.
