Seattle Doesn't Know How Good it Has it, Vol. XVI: Holmes Calls Graffiti "Priority"

Look out, he's got a gun! Oh wait. It's just spray paint.
Listen. I know that I-1033 is going to crack the sky. And one of the two guys who doesn't have any experience running a city will somehow turn us all into T-Mobile subscribers or Sierra Club dues-payers. But here's a heads-up for you, Seattle. When a candidate for the top lawyers job in the city is officially proclaiming anti-graffiti measures as a priority, you know you've got it made.

City Attorney candidate Pete Holmes said Monday he'd make fighting graffiti a priority if elected.

"Graffiti and tagging that mar public and private property will not be tolerated. Graffiti has increased dramatically in the last few years, but prosecutions are down 44% since the start of Tom Carr's tenure," Holmes said in a statement. "With or without federal grant money, we will develop a database of graffiti and tagging, and start holding the perpetrators responsible. Graffiti painters and taggers will clean up their own mess ... and then some."
