Murray lauds Councilmember Licata

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray today issued the following statement after Councilmember Nick Licata announced his intention not to run for reelection:

“Councilmember Licata has been a stalwart advocate for those who are too often shut out of the public process – the single working mom, the homeless veteran, the struggling artist. He has used his political savvy to support social justice across our community. After decades of committed public service to the people of Seattle, we owe him a huge debt. His voice will be sorely missed on the City Council.”
