"Thank you for taking the time to comment in support of Mr. Johnson. As you may know, Seattle City Attorney Peter Holmes, not the mayor, is the elected official with the discretion to charge city infractions, misdemeanors, and gross misdemeanors. In this case, the decision to prosecute Mr. Johnson was made last month by the previous City Attorney. You will be happy to know that after City Attorney Holmes took office and reviewed the case, the charges against Mr. Johnson were dropped as of this morning. If you have any further questions or comments about this case, feel free to contact Mr. Holmes (peter.holmes@
seattle.gov) and his Criminal Division Chief, Craig Sims (craig.sims@seattle. gov).
Again, thank you for taking the time to comment.
Yours in service,
Office of Mayor Mike McGinn"
In any case, congrats Daniel.
