Seattle City Councilman Mike O’Brien to Constituents – You Are Getting Sleepy…

My wife and I were walking along the Green Lake Park foot path in Seattle a few months ago when we saw something odd. At various intervals along the 2.8-mile path, there were black and white logos stenciled onto the pavement with the words, “Visualize Recall” and the image of a man’s face. I was curious, but, being Seattle, I wrote it off as more lefty nonsense about Donald Trump. Apparently, I was wrong.

I tried to find out what the logo meant and had no success. As the biodegradable paint faded over the following weeks, so did my memory. A cop buddy of mine inadvertently solved the mystery. On Facebook, he posted a YouTube video of a community meeting between Ballard neighborhood residents, besieged by a “homeless” crime crisis, and their city council representative Mike O’Brien (Dist. 6).
