Pray for Ann Davison - Seattle Prosecutor

 If you live within 100 miles of Seattle pray for Ann Davison, new Seattle City Attorney (really prosecutor). In electing her the voters threw out the incumbent who stopped prosecuting… almost every crime. She has a huge challenge. She wants to move cases much more quickly, but her predecessor left a huge backup she must work through. It's very hard to do both. Sea Times

And the entire political establishment is against her. The City Council added reporting requirements before she took office that had not been applied to her predecessors for 100 years.

King County Executive Dow Constantine wants to close the County Jail. What? He already closed half of it and wants to finish it. HIs defense is covid, but he proposed the closure before February, 2020 and he is not reopening the closed part. There is a second jail that is much smaller and too far south to be the main jail. That is their thinking! They want to close the jail.

Our safety depends on her success. Please pray for Ann.
