It’s all about transportation (with a dollop of ethics) this morning.
SDOT Director Scott Kubly was ushered into office with city officials hailing him as a “transportation visionary.” But in the last year his repeated missteps have eroded his support.

The team-up of Mayor Murray and Council member Kshama Sawant over protections for tenants tops the news this morning.
News coverage is all over the map this morning.
Bertha’s upcoming dig under the Viaduct leads the news this morning.
So much going on this morning, including reports from yesterday’s committee hearing on police staffing, tour bus regulations, and more.
