Seattle’s Mayor and Appearances

Greg Nickels unquestionably politically astute. He ballyhoos his efforts to get the cities to adopt the terms of the Kyoto accord, then his administration in less public forums cow-tows to developers within the City. More recently he promoted a homeless ordinance that is roundly condemned by representatives of the homeless, then this week announces a pilot program offering a small amount of money to people confronting foreclosure.

Seattle’s pilot program sounds like a good template for assisting people facing foreclosure, but its effect on the problem of homelessness is incremental.
