Also known as “GoT minus 2 days, 11 hours, 45 minutes.” (but who’s counting?)

In a pair of meetings this week, the Council discussed issues and possible amendments related to the Mayor’s proposal for renewing the Seattle Library Levy.
This afternoon, King County Executive Dow Constantine announced that he is nominating Seattle City Council member Debora Juarez to the seat on the Sound Transit board that was vacated by Rob Johnson.
Yesterday the City Council announced an update to their plan for filling the vacant District 4 seat on the Council.
Things are quieting down as we get to the end of the week.
For the last couple of weeks, Council member Teresa Mosqueda has been circulating a draft resolution “supporting a safe and responsive workplace” within the city government’s Legislative Department.

Lots of news today.
This morning, a bill requiring places of public accommodation to turn on closed captions on all televisions in public areas was passed out of committee and is now headed for final approval by the full Council next Monday.
