Seattle City Council statement on today’s Council meeting 

There was a disturbance during today’s Seattle City Council meeting. It was resolved so that the Council could get back to conducting the people’s business. Today, that included honoring the late Senator George Fleming. The resolution was unanimously passed by Council and his family was present to receive it. 

To be clear – that disturbance was caused by a group of protesters and not refugees, who the City of Seattle has been working with to provide shelter.
