  1. Up to $98,000 a year for a social worker that doesn’t require a license or any kind of clinical supervision? The city is really setting itsself up for problems. Everey other social worker who works with a police department has clinical supervision. The job description says it is just a call away. That is no way to do business without a formal process in place. How is the economic department head going to supervise a social worker?

    1. Sam, welcome to the new norm. Politicians feel good, when you promote social justice and social justice warriors. Look at me, you don’t have to call the police. Just call the social worker who has no experience in real life situations. Another waste of tax payer dollars. Seattle is leaking into Edmonds more and more. Prime example in Seattle they hire a pimp at &150,000 a year to do what? Nothing. Makes politicians feel good.
