High School Students - Input Wanted on Next Police Chief

Got a politically-minded high schooler with some time on his/her hands? From Publicola:

Two of the most important members, in our opinion, of Mayor Ed Murray's police chief-search Community Advisory Committee, Franklin High School's Isaiah Bridges and Garfield High School's Jabari Cook—a pair of African American South End high school students in a city where the SPD has a strained relationship with young African American men in southeast Seattle—are no longer on the committee. 

Mayor's office spokeswoman Roz Brazel simply told us the students "were not able to keep their commitments...due to permission and contact issues."

We've asked for more clarity.

The mayor's office is currently trying to find replacements for the two committee members with a "goal" of appointing two more students.

Give the Mayor a call, (206) 684-4000.
