Mayor Murray: The First 100 Days

During his first State of the City address, Mayor Ed Murray described his vision for a city that is a safe, vibrant, affordable, innovative, and interconnected. Since taking office in January one-hundred days ago, Mayor Murray and his administration have been working swiftly on a number of priorities that align with that vision.

Below is not a comprehensive list of everything that has been accomplished – nor is the first one-hundred days an inherently meaningful milepost – but we wanted to use this occasion as an opportunity to highlight some of the Mayor’s Office accomplishments, direction-setting and momentum moving forward.
