Seattle Times letters to the editor

Washington state Republicans propose repeal of sick-leave law

Trust and the Seattle City Council

The bills to repeal Seatte’s sick-leave law are “a violation of trust in the democratic process,” according to Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata, as quoted in The Seattle Times [“GOP bills take aim at Seattle’s sick-leave law,” NWThursday, Feb. 14].

The number of times the Seattle City Council has engendered mistrust is stunning.

And besides, Mr. Licata, are you calling the Washington state Legislature undemocratic in its processes?

–Eric Tronsen, Seattle
