SeattleMet reports that Mayor Durkan has nominated Debra Smith to head Seattle City Light.

JD Supra covers the recently-passed Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights.

Government Technology looks at the uses and abuses of data-driven government.

Erica C. Barnett reports on a plan to build backyard cottages to help house the city’s homeless.

The Seattle Times has an editorial arguing that the Mayor and the Council have a propensity for transacting city business behind closed doors that undermines the public trust in city government.
