A Good and Honorable Man

Mayor SchellThe passing of former Mayor Paul Schell this past weekend came as quite a shock because he was such an active, engaged and passionate leader. 

Above all, I knew Mayor Schell to be a good and honorable man. He was deeply committed to serving the common good. He cared about all of Seattle, every neighborhood, all of the people of Seattle.

This Seattle Times story is a good summary of his public service. Note especially the photo gallery. Former Mayor Charles Royer shared poignant comments on KUOW early today.

Former Mayor Schell’s public memorial service will be held on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 3 p.m. at the Bell Harbor Conference Center.
