Slideshow: Mayor Ed Murray walks through Seattle’s Chinatown International District

On Saturday, The Seattle Times published my editorial notebook on Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s “Find It, Fix It” community walk through Chinatown International District. Well over 100 people showed up to take a stroll through the neighborhood, pointing out their concerns along the way.

Here’s a slideshow from the event, which began at 6 p.m. last Thursday and ended around 7:30 p.m. 

Here’s how Murray responded to the experience of being nearly mobbed by Asian elders, business owners and local residents, as well as other ethnic groups:

As the walk wound down, Murray told me the city needs to change the ways it communicates with diverse neighborhoods.

“If folks here have been overlooked, we need to correct it,” he promised.

Head to this link on the mayor’s website to see how previous walks in other neighborhoods have resulted in fixes a few weeks later.
