The first thing you need to know about Mayor Ed Murray’s new interim action plan on unsheltered homelessness is that it was released after 6 p.m. on a Friday.
When a major policy announcement is timed to bury media response, that’s a sign of something to hide.
It’s also discouraging that the plan consists of measures the mayor’s office can take without Seattle City Council approval. It’s like the mayor’s office is declaring, “Hey, no need to worry. We got this!”
Move along. Emergency handled. Nothing to see here.
