Learn about the latest in local public affairs in about the time it takes for a coffee break! Brian Callanan of Seattle Channel and Kevin Schofield of Seattle City Council Insight discuss the final touches on the City budget, from police funding to homelessness encampment management. Plus, we look at the reasoning behind Mayor Durkan's decision to repair, not replace, the West Seattle Bridge, and the growing campaigns, pro and con, in the effort to recall Councilmember Kshama Sawant. Kevin also offers some baking insights on pumpkin bread, as we give special thanks for our listeners this week. If you like this podcast, please support us on Patreon!
