The other side of Wes=[edit]

Untitled[edit]

I grew up in Seattle,  in 1969  I was 23 and am familiar with how he ruined the schools with his forced busing of students.
 In 1969  Seattle PS's  had 100,000 students, 90% white,
 by the time Uhlman left office,  enrollment was down to 40,000.

The City of Seattle has had a stable population of about 500,000 for the last 60 years. The surrounding suburbs have had all the growth and that's where the white parents fled with their children during Ullman's misrule.

By the early 80's,  the number of white students in Seattle PS's was down to 10,000.
A 90% drop from 1969.
The article also fails to mention the recall election Uhlman barely survived.

Could easily be expanded[edit]

I just dealt with the lack of references, which had been (appropriately) tagged. The Emily Lieb article I used to cite for most of this contains a lot that is not in our article, if someone wants to expand it. Also, a search on "Wes Uhlman" turns up a lot of rather high-quality sources. There is probably also relevant material in Walt Crowley's memoir Rites of Passage (Crowley worked for the Uhlman administration). - Jmabel | Talk 03:07, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Ryanscraper (talk) 02:38, 21 August 2012 (UTC)"In 1888, 31-year-old Robert Moran was elected the Republican mayor of Seattle" (Wikipedia, Robert Moran (shipbuilder)). This means that Uhlman wasn't the youngest mayor of Seattle.
