## Background ##

On September 15, 2016, Seattle's, Auburn's, Renton's and King County's [Heroin and Prescription Opiate Addiction Task Force][1] issued a set of [recommendations][2] comprising a strategy for confronting the region's growing heroin and opioid epidemic. The recommendations focused on prevention, increasing access to treatment on demand, and reducing the number of fatal overdoses. Among those recommendations was that a pilot project be initiated with the establishment of two supervised consumption spaces--public health facilities also known by several other names, including community health engagement locations, in which people living with substance abuse disorder would be allowed to use otherwise-prohibited drugs in a clean environment that provides supervision, medical assistance, and connections to health care and long-term treatment. The task force recommended that for the pilot, one of these facilities be located in Seattle and the other be located elsewhere in King County. About four months later, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and King County Executive Dow Constantine formally [accepted all recommendations][3] issued by the task force.

On May 11, 2017, a public initiative to ban supervised consumption sites in King County was [announced][4]. Chief sponsor of the proposed initiative (I-27) is Bothell City Council member Joshua Freed. The campaign formed a political action committee called Impaction, and Freed was later [reported][5] as the top donor to the PAC, having contributed $40,000 to it. Freed also filed a campaign-violation complaint with Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, alleging that county officials improperly used public time and resources to oppose I-27.

These appear to be e-mail messages in a proprietary Microsoft Outlook format. With a bit of effort and a special plugin, I was able to import them into Thunderbird and read them.

Dear Mr. Mocek,

I discovered that I inadvertently left out "Initiative 27" from the search criteria for this request. I apologize for the oversight. I requested a new search of Mr. Freed's emails from September 1, 2016 containing "Initiative 27" and returned the attached three emails.

Again, I apologize for any inconvenience. You now have all of the responsive records to this request. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
