Seattle Times letters to the editor

Snow disaster

Blame: too late, wrong guy

The Seattle Times’ attempt to blame Seattle’s botched snowstorm response on the management style of Paul Jackson Jr., Seattle’s former street-maintenance director, is not persuasive [“Streets honcho under fire long before snow fiasco,” page one, May 8].

The blame clearly falls on the decision by Mayor Greg Nickels to forgo the use of de-icing chemicals and to use rubber-bladed plows to smooth over the icy snow, rather than remove it from Seattle’s streets. Now it is May in Seattle, and your front-page article is just another late-season “snow job.”
