Chief Gibson was confirmed in April with many KUDOS from Council (click on first link of this post for my April story). The Chief's January 7 Chat will be his first interface with citizens on a VERY hot issue. I encourage everyone to attend his January talk. I won't miss this one!

RNB COMMENT: On Tuesday, December 21 the city notified the Redmond Reporter and KIRO about their last minute holiday change in red-light start times from Jan. 1 to Feb. 1. RNB was not notified or recieve a press release. I called the Mayor's Secretary to verify what I read, second hand, and request all press releases. I advised her to correct the dFocus announcement if possible.
