Councilman Reagan Dunn condemns violent May Day protesters
May 8, 2012
Reagan Dunn, a local representative on the King County Council, condemned violent May Day protests as downtown Seattle merchants started to clean up after the May 1 incident.
“These threats to public safety and the attacks on our fellow citizens and on private property must not be tolerated,” he said in a statement released after protesters marched through Seattle and smashed windows at American Apparel, Wells Fargo and other businesses.
The protests also caused transit disruptions for King County Metro Transit commuters.
Dunn, a Republican, is running for state attorney general against a council colleague, Democrat Bob Ferguson. The law-and-order message from Dunn came as the 2012 campaign season enters a more intense phase.
Dunn represents rural areas south of Issaquah and Newcastle on the council.
