Dori Monson: We have a leadership void in the city of Seattle

We have a real void of leadership in the city of Seattle. Ed Murray is not the guy to be running the city. Did Ed Murray do the right thing today in not granting a raise to Seattle City Light CEO Jorge Carrasco? Absolutely. But right now, The Seattle Times and KIRO Radio, seem to be the only ones who are holding the city leaders accountable, because they are not watching out for the taxpayers.

Seattle mayor changes tune, says no raise for City Light CEO Jorge Carrasco

Amidst a growing controversy, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced Wednesday he will not give a raise to Seattle City Light CEO Jorge Carrasco.

Why do public officials think they can lie to us?

I've been a watchdog of local government for a couple of decades now. I have never seen a something like what we have now in local politics. What we are seeing is a level of hypocrisy and lying among the people running this city like I have never seen before.

Detectives investigating death of 100-year-old man in SeaTac as homicide

"There is a story in the news today that just broke my heart," says KIRO Radio's Dori Monson. "A 100-year-old man has been found dead in SeaTac and homicide is expected. This is a guy who lived through World War I, World War II, all the history of the last 100 years and they think that homicide is what ended his 100 years on earth."

So...Carrasco lied

I don't blame Carrasco for wanting to get as much money as he possibly could from the city and our tax-and-rate-payers. But for some bizarre reason, he decided to lie about that on KIRO Radio on Friday. We have a real ethical problem here.
