Chinatown and International District Sweep

This morning city crews cleared tents on King St. again. They’ve done this multiple times in past year. It’s a problematic area near the parking lot. As crews wrapped up, neighbors told me to spotlight the one @SeattleSPU continues to miss.

Seattle Sweeps Continue

@MayorofSeattle is on a furious pace. More on way this month. Including other notorious hot spots in #Seattle. Activists were yelling at me during CID clearing this morning, but seems like they are also coming to the realization these are not stopping.

Interesting Neighbor

This Chinatown ID homeless encampment off King St. shares a fence line with food bank ACRS (Asian Counseling and Referral Service). Campers told me this non-profit has provided food and support.
