Statement: Chair Tina Podlodowski on Mayor Ed Murray's resignation

September 12, 2017

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

“Since the beginning, this has been a shocking and frustrating situation for our Seattle community. Ed Murray made the correct decision to resign. As a mom of three children, and an openly lesbian former City Council member, I am heartbroken by the tragic events that have led to this moment. For survivors of sexual abuse, the road to healing can be long and arduous. I sincerely hope that today’s events will be a positive step toward closure and healing for those who have come forward.”
