What you should be reading

Welcome to all the new readers! Yesterday was a crazy day here at SCC Insight, but I’m thrilled and humbled by all the new attention and for all the words of support.

I am also humbled to be in the company of a number of very talented writers and journalists who also cover Seattle city government, who have been doing this for years (unlike me, the newcomer) and have developed keen insight and intuition for the topic. I thought it might be helpful to share with you a list of my colleagues so you can follow their writing as well as mine. I don’t always agree with them (and they certainly don’t all agree with each other, or with me), but I always read everything they write and it makes me better informed. Together they represent a unique, diverse and essential collection of viewpoints and opinions that broadens our city’s dialogue. I encourage you to read them all.
