Quotes

For the seventh straight year, Seattle's cruise business exceeded 800,000 passengers. "We remain committed to growing that number, as well as getting cruise-going visitors to stay here a few extra days" Creighton said
"Chief Dean demonstrated the highest commitment to public service over a distinguished career here at the City," said Murray. "We salute his devotion to the department and to his firefighters. I wish him the best in the future, even as I know I will miss his steady leadership and wise counsel."
"We don't believe the Port of Seattle Commission is looking to change existing cargo terminals," Romischer said. "But we are concerned that in the future, if there is not strong language to protect terminals, such as Terminal 46 or Terminal 5, from developers trying to change them into condos or arenas, we may have an issue in the future."
"This is the right place to begin the next step together" said Port of Tacoma Commission President Clare Petrich. The two commissions first met together for the first time in Auburn City Hall in 2008
