Sort of semi-personal.... News
states that former mayor Mary Verner, who moved to Seattle after losing office here, was seriously injured in a bicycle crash. Her medical expenses are apparently not covered, so her friends set up a GoFundMe thing here.
(This wasn't linked in the news items.)
I said some harsh things about Verner in the first year of her mayor term, then came to realize that she was NOT evil, just overwhelmed. A loyal political servant who got in over her head. She did some good things as mayor, trying to serve the poor more than the rich. Unlike Copkiller Condon, she DEFENDED a cop when he got in trouble.
So I tossed a little money in the well as a form of apology for the harsh words.
