Murray statement on recent Port action

SEATTLE (May 12, 2015) - Mayor Ed Murray issued the following statement after today's meeting of the Port of Seattle Commission:

"I commend the Port Commission for deciding that the arrival of an off-shore drilling rig should be delayed until the proper permits are in place. I now hope Shell will respect the wishes of the Port, the City and the community at large, and not bring an off-shore drilling rig into Elliott Bay."
