    Respecting and Roasting outgoing Councilmembers McIver, Drago

    Published by at 10:58 pm under Jan Drago,Richard McIver

    Surrounded at Seattle’s Royal Esquire Club with colleagues, friends and family, on November 5, 2009, Councilmember Richard McIver was honored with a final salute as he retires from the Seattle City Council. Those closest to him thought the best way to say farewell was to “roast” him out of office – and they did!

    I had the honor of kicking the program off with help from many honored guests, including outgoing Mayor Greg Nickels, Deputy Mayor Tim Ceis, PSRC’s Bob Drewel, four City Councilmembers, and a host of community leaders — including Roberto Maestas, Joann Francis, and Bob Santos. The 250 guests learned that one of McIver’s highest priorities was to “represent the under-represented.”

    In a video presentation, when CR Douglas asked CM McIver what he will do after 13 years on the Council, McIver responded, “Nothing! I’d come down and sit beside Mr. Locke (a citizen who attends all city hall meetings) and I’d become the Council’s boss as a taxpayer.”

    On December 9, 2009, I attended for outgoing Councilmember Jan Drago, a celebration at the Mayflower Park Hotel where she was recognized for her 4 terms of service. Her theme was “Dance with the one who brung you to the party” and she was surrounded by many guests, colleagues, activists and well wishers, many of whom were instrumental in helping her launch her political career 16 years ago. CM Drago’s work on issues such as transportation and the arts were praised by many. CM Drago’s style of being direct, candid and action-oriented will be missed.

    This week, there will be a joint retirement party honoring Councilmembers Drago and McIver. The event will take place at City Hall’s Bertha Knight Landes Room on Tuesday, December 15th at 4:30 p.m.

    I was honored to have worked with my friends “Jan” and “Dick”. If there is one quality that they both exemplified, it was integrity. They never backed away from their values and beliefs and supported legislation that was consistent with these values and beliefs. In other words, they were true to themselves and true to the causes they believed in. Farewell my friends!!!
