The Chief of Seattle Police Department and the Mayor of Seattle made a grievous error in not firing Officer Frank Poblacki. James Donaldson explains why the decision to merely suspend Officer Poblacki, who has a lengthy disciplinary history. "This is a travesty, an insult to accountability, an insult to our citizens, and an insult to the good cops," James said.
James Donaldson is running for Seattle City Council, District 7. In his campaign announcement, he said, “I have lived around the world, in cities millennia old that have found solutions that seem to put Seattle leaders in the fetal position. I’ve learned a few things, and I’m not afraid to use my personal, deeply painful experiences and apply my life lessons,” Donaldson says. “I have been open, honest and completely transparent throughout my life; our civic government has not. I want to change that and more.”
"With the mishandling of Officer Poblacki, we once again had the opportunity to be open, honest and forthright; we had the opportunity to hold someone accountable," James said. "And, once again, the City blew it. When I am elected to the City Council, I will hold people accountable, including the Chief of Police, and including the Mayor. Our City deserves better."
