Shaun Bickley, Autistic Leftist Activist, full of vitriol and ableism, was confirmed today in a Commission Appointed seat on the Seattle Disabilities Commission.
Below is a link to the special meeting – there are several public comments which start at 12:15 and run through 26:00. The discussion with Bickley and Co-Chair ObeySumner regarding the appointment begins at 1:03:45 and runs through 1:31:29
I fully understand the process and the “hands-off” approach the city council is taking with a Commission Appointment. I also understand this is the first time there have been public comments opposing an appointment. Given that this appointment, with knowledge of the allegations and evidence of abuse, libel, discrimination, violations of First Amendment and violations of the Washington State Law Open Public Meetings Act, was confirmed sets a dangerous precedent in Seattle.
Is it an oxymoron that Mayor Durkan signed Executive Order 2018-04: Anti-Harassment and Anti-Discrimination today? This “will reform and update how the City addresses allegations of harassment, discrimination, and other forms of misconduct.”
Both Bickley and ObeySumner identify as autistic.
