Mayor Ed Murray praises Super Bowl preparation efforts
Mayor Ed Murray had the following statement today about the City’s Super Bowl preparations:
“I would like to thank the Seattle Police Department for their careful planning and effective execution following last night’s Super Bowl win. Officers worked hard to contain the celebrations and preserve the peace in the city. To be fully prepared, I activated the City's Emergency Operations Center while the game was in progress. We were pleased to see there was minimal damage and no serious injuries.
The City has also been planning for the past several weeks to celebrate the Seahawks’ exciting win. We are working with the Seahawks organization to finalize the details of Wednesday’s parade and rally. I expect the parade to be a safe and fun event that honors the team for their remarkable achievement.”
