Urban Politics #187: City Council Passes the Budget

November 12th, 2004

Each budget season I try to provide a quick synopsis of how the Council has altered the City Budget as the Mayor presented it to us. In this Urban Politics, I’ve borrowed generously from our staff’s summary. In a few places I’ve added some commentary or abbreviated the material, but overall I’m presenting information as our staff has summarized it. I believe it provides a fair summary the changes the Council made to the new City Budget.

Urban Politics #63: Announcing UP Index On The Web

May 13th, 1999

For those of you who want to track issues that I have been writing about in Urban Politics, we now have a UP subject index posted on the web. There’s a link to it here. All of the past issues of UP are listed with the exception of UP #1, which probably less than 200 people received. This was my first attempt (in September 1996) at communicating with citizens through the internet and it may not even labeled as UP Issue #1. It dealt the City’s transfer of the Freeway Park Garage to the Washington State Convention Center. If anyone has a copy of it, please let me know. I’d like to add it to our index. Thank you.
