When liberals’ policies and practices fail their citizens, the best way to cover their butts is to create some propaganda!
Want to know how much of a “success” Seattle is? See the following examples:
Resident in liberal utopia of Seattle who has been targeted by homeless: “Our community is just falling apart”
Seattle repeat offender attacks man outside courthouse; was just released from jail earlier this month
Liberal utopia of Seattle: Prostitutes flooding the streets due to lack of law enforcement
Lawless in Seattle: Police take over an hour to respond to burglary in progress
Violent repeat offender in Seattle assaults toddler with coffee, two days after his jail release
Scared in Seattle: Citizens terrorized by the homeless & sidewalks turned into toilets
To somehow convince themselves that they are really successful demorats, the city Seattle has created a “information dashboard” where Seattle residents can see what their City is doing to make their lives better.
Excerpts from Mayor Jenny Durkan’s exciting announcement:
“We are showing how we are improving access to frequent transit, building affordable housing, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, meeting targets in our delivery of basic City services, and increasing people’s access to critical services and supports. My commitment is to share with Seattle’s residents where we are meeting our goals and where we need to lean in and innovate.”
The Performance Seattle dashboard tracks the City’s success meeting aggressive performance metrics, helping departments meet critical service delivery goals – like Seattle Police Department’s goal of responding to 100% of Priority 1 calls within seven minutes.
Seattle’s leadership is committed to governing with data and evidence.”

How long did Seattle’s leaders work on this information dashboard? “Performance Seattle is a product of months of work by the Seattle Innovation & Performance team, and was developed in collaboration with over 150 City staff.”
Here’s a link to the new “Performance Seattle” website where residents can obtain a “deeper understanding of how well the City of Seattle is meeting key on-going service targets.”
