“I congratulate Chief Diaz on his appointment by Mayor McGinn and pledge to work tirelessly with him to increase the safety of everyone in Seattle while safeguarding our cherished liberties. Assuming his confirmation by City Council, Chief Diaz will finally be fully in command of an excellent police department that nonetheless needs his firm leadership to face the challenges ahead. Together we can demonstrate to all people in Seattle – and, indeed, the rest of the country – that public safety and social justice are not mutually exclusive, even in the midst of a deep, stubborn recession.”
