A virtual meeting featuring our virtual Councilmember. Well, well, how appropriate.

And to an audience of virtual constituents. Sounds like there’s no real need to attend, since nobody will actually be there.

With Dan, there’s never any there there.

Dan “the enabler” Strauss will not go anywhere near Ballard Commons or anywhere else in his District. The guy is a loser. Thanks for the uptick in crime and heroin addicts Dan! Awww… sweeps are bad so let’s keep the homeless in Hep A filth. Ideological win for the social justice brigade that puts their ideas first while the people they intend to help continue to live in squalor, many deep in their own addiction hell. He opposed the clean up the Commons for social justice reasons. You know, let the heroin addicts remain addicts and f- you public safety.
Let’s see how Dan articulates the benefit of leaving homeless on the streets and in Hep A environment versus shelter and healthcare. Can’t wait for that jumbled logic…
