SPD’s Horsey Unit Finally Sent to Glue Factory

I’ve been making jokes about it for years, but it seems like it’s finally going to happen this time: Sources tell us SPD’s mounted unit is being sent to the glue factory.

SPD was asked to trim 1.5% from its budget earlier this year, and we’re told that the mounted unit is one of several cuts proposed by SPD.

Mayor McGinn is scheduled to announce other cuts at a meeting in South Seattle in just a few minutes.
