October Urbanist Meetup with Nicole Thomas-Kennedy

October 12 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

Nicole Thomas-Kennedy pulled off an impressive upset in the primary race for Seattle City Attorney. Three-term incumbent Pete Holmes was sent packing after Thomas-Kennedy grabbed first place with 36% of the vote, and Republican Ann Davison snagged second. This sets up a general election of sharp contrasts. Davison is preaching debunked broken windows theory, a Seattle is Dying-style crackdown on homeless people, and a general ‘get off my lawn’ approach. Thomas-Kennedy (NTK) has advocated for an abolitionist approach that would prosecute far fewer misdemeanors and focus more City resources on fighting wage theft and defending new progressive city laws from legal challenges. Investing in the social safety net rather than punitive criminal legal system could get at root causes that really cause crime, and that’s why The Urbanist Election Committee endorsed NTK in the primary. Hear more about abolition and NTK’s platform at our October meetup. The Zoom call opens at 6:15pm and NTK’s talk starts at 6:30pm.
