It is obvious that Seattle City Council members Tim Burgess and Tom Rasmussen have not been anywhere near the Chinatown/International District in a long time. [“Parking-rate critics target McGinn,” NW Friday, July 5.]

The massive long-term disruption along South Jackson Street by the First Hill trolley construction project is undeniable. Parking should be free in the core Chinatown/Little Saigon area to partially mitigate this disruption.
